Youth Workshops Kickstart Film Careers

21 October 2019 11:00 AM

As part of the Drug Aware Torchlight Youth Film Festival, the City of Kalamunda’s Youth Services team hosted two free ‘Introduction to Filmmaking’ workshops during the October school holidays.

Eight youth attended the free, two full-day sessions facilitated by two professional filmmakers.

Topics explored included storyboarding short film themes; brainstorming iconic Kalamunda ‘shoot’ sites; sharing ‘how to’ skills regarding equipment use and an opportunity to practice.

Attendees visited various locations to shoot footage, taking turns with the different cameras and acting and finished up discussing post-production and future film submissions.

The City’s CEO Rhonda Hardy said providing opportunities for local youth to learn creative skills and explore career pathways in the film industry was a key priority for the City.

“These kind of workshops play an important role in inspiring the City’s creative young minds,” Ms Hardy said.

Once completed, the final short films will be shared across the City’s social media channels and website and screen at the Drug Aware Torchlight Film Festival on 27 November at the Kalamunda Performing Arts Centre.

The City provided the workshop with support from Healthway and Propel Youth Arts WA and funding from the Drug Aware YCulture Metro Grant.
