Summer School - Making Films of your Research with Smart / iPhones and Digital Cameras

Do you want to share your research with a wider audience?

Are you working with documents, objects, photographs or art-works?

If so, why not learn how to make a short film about your research.

No need to buy expensive equipment, this course will show you how to create a film of your research using your phone, tablet or digital camera.

Immerse yourself in this six day summer school where you will learn how to script and produce a short research film based on interviews, documents, art and objects. This is a practical, hands-on course, where you will spend time at an archive and local museum learning the specific skills needed to make your film. You will then learn practical editing skills, so that at the end of the course you will come away with a completed film and the skills to transform your own research into a short film that can be shared in presentations or on-line.

During the course we will cover:

  • The implications of using moving image for sharing research

  • Making scripting and production choices

  • Developing practical shooting skills

  • Planning, scripting and shooting your own short research film

  • Learning practical Editing Skills

  • Sharing recorded and edited audio-visual material

At the end of the course there will be a screening of all the films.

Attendees will need to bring along a smart phone/iphone, tablet, digital camera or other equipment capable of recording digital video.

Hotel accommodation and meals are included and there will be opportunities to socialize in the evenings.
