First Shot Film Week

The First Shot Film Week is a free five day filmmaking activity delivered by Access Moving Image and the Hyde Park Picture House in partnership with Into Film.

First Shot Film Week will run w/c Monday 26th October 2015 between 10am and 3pm. It will enable 15 young people to produce a short film that will be screened at the Hyde Park Picture House during the Into Film Festival.
This project is specifically targeting young people aged between 8-12 years of age. It has been designed to introduce young people to the idea of pursuing a career in the film and TV industries. Participants will be learning to use customised iPads using the FilMiC Pro app that was used to shoot the independent feature film Tangerine, which was a breakout success at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
Participants will -
• Learn how to write stories for the big screen
• Develop a better understanding how film festivals and cinemas work
• Make short films as part of a team under the guidance of experienced filmmakers
• Learn how to plan, shoot and edit a film
• Have the opportunity to bring friends and family to a real cinema to see their films on the big screen.
Are you the parent or teacher of a young person aged between 8-12 years of age? If so, this is a FANTASTIC opportunity for them to learn about new technology and make new friends. It’s absolutely free, but participants are expected to bring their own lunch.
