Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Not afraid of things that go bump in the night?
In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn how to write, direct, act in and edit a short film inspired by the gothic imagination of Tim Burton.
Perfect for budding filmmakers and Burton fans, you'll draw inspiration from Burton's iconic cinema (think Beetlejuice
, Edward Scissorhands
, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
and Alice in Wonderland
) to create your own live-action short film.
Working in small groups under the guidance of experienced staff, you'll pitch your ideas, script, storyboard, act, direct and operate a camera, film in ACMI and on location around Federation Square. Then step into our post-production studio to cut together your film and add a spooky Danny Elfman-style soundtrack.
On Friday, invite two special guests for your red carpet premiere from 3pm.
Workshop is suitable for kids aged 10 to 14.
