Class Overview:

I have been playing with film-making for nearly ten years now and while initially I just captured my children as they grew, it wasn’t long before I started to have ideas for stories that I wanted to share with the world. Many stories later, what was once a hobby is now a full time career for me and I love it! The medium of film never ceases to amaze and move me. It is one of the most powerful ways to communicate and share stories and ideas. A good film takes us on a journey and can change our very understanding of life. This is a fascinating opportunity to me. 

The Beginners course is for people who want to learn how to use their DSLR and edit their footage to make short films. Maybe you are a mum wanting to capture fleeting moments of your children. Maybe you are a portrait photographer and you have always dreamt of shooting film but the idea overwhelms you. Maybe you have already experimented with filming a little but the task of finding the perfect music and editing the footage was too much, so your project was never finished.
