Over the years I’ve picked up a few skills in the field of filming and editing video and on occasion I have been asked to pass these skills on to others. I enjoy it, and those envolved seem to enjoy it too.
The broad term I would use to describe the teaching/learning sessions would be video workshops, however each time I take on one of these projects it is always different to the last.
I suppose the main reason for this is there are many aspects to video and it has taken me quite a while to learn the skills that I have. It would be impossible to pass all the tips, tricks and techniques on in one go, so before taking on a workshop I sit down and discuss what are the outcomes we are looking to achieve. This can be as simple as wanting to be able to pick up a camera and use it, or as detailed as learning the filmmaking process from first draft of the script to the last draft of the edit.
Below are a couple of examples of the workshops I have completed in the past to give an idea of what can be expected.
