This is a 2-day workshop for grassroot protestors and NGO workers, to learn skills in using video to support your campaigns. The purpose of the course is to show how easy it can be for you to make videos for your group and upload them to the web, cutting costs in commissioning films, and allowing protestors to gain wider audiences of their actions and be there as a visual witness. Over the two days we will practise how to film different shots, how to get good audio and how to film events, marches, occupations and banner drops. We will discuss how to stay safe and what equipment to use in low budget scenarios. You will learn the basics of editing and uploading onto the web, how and where to get your footage seen and used to support the campaigns you work for. We will offer support as you tackle your first media projects.
This is a level 1, entry level course from which you will gain a basic understanding of filming and editing, giving you the skills and confidence to have a go at making a basic film for your group. This course is highly subsidised by a grant from LUSH.
