The Day

Our General Discovery Days run from 10 – 6 pm, including two practical exercises. The first half of the day involved an Ideas Workshop which includes:

  • Storytelling and brainstorming methods.
  • Directing techniques.
  • Working to a brief.
  • Targeting an audience.

You will explore how to brainstorm effectively, how to use your ideas to tell a story and to influence with online video. You will be given a brief that you will work for the final exercise of the day. You will consider how to unpick and respond to a brief, and how to get your ideas across on screen

You will be set a short filmmaking exercise which will introduce you to the basics of directing the video. Working in teams you’ll respond to the briefing over a two-hour shooting period

The second half of the day is an Editing Masterclass where you will bring your video to life working with a professional video editor. This includes

  • Workflows and vision.
  • Review and critique of shot material.
  • How to create an assembly edit.
  • Working creatively with music and colour (time permitting).
