Free video production workshop: May 8th

Media Trust is running a free video production workshop in Brighton at a centrally located venue on May 8th from 10am-4.30pm for charitable and community groups.

There are only 10 places on the course, and as these are not allocated on a first come first served basis they are asking people to complete an application form to enable them to target those groups they feel will get the most from this opportunity and from the subsequent mentoring available to them following the workshop.

All successful/unsuccessful applicants will be notified the next working day.

The Workshop

This introductory workshop is designed to help charities and community groups understand how they can turn their stories into short films, and will cover planning, recording and editing.  A hands-on learning environment will give practical guidance on using low-cost equipment and techniques that will make videos look professional, even on a low budget.

The workshop is part of Do #SomethingBrilliant, a two year campaign funded by Big Lottery that sets out to celebrate the inspiring stories from communities across the UK.

Who is it for

The Do #SomethingBrilliant video production workshop is for charities and community groups interested in creating their own video content for the web and broadcast platforms like Community Channel. Workshop graduates will be mentored through an assignment to create a short film about the great work they are doing in their community, a film that will inspire others to do something brilliant.

It is suitable for groups who perhaps have a bit of experience using video, maybe made a couple of videos, and would like to develop their skills.  Or for those who recognise the value of using video and are just starting to take their first steps and would like to learn more about the equipment, storytelling techniques, shooting and editing.

Please note, Do #SomethingBrilliant offers training and access to equipment only in the workshop context.  If you don’t have a camera to complete your project after the workshop, we have three video cameras available for hire from the Resource Centre.

Each organisation will need to apply and should be prepared to nominate two people to attend the workshop.
