About the workshop

In this three day advanced workshop, explore the fundamentals of the filmmaking production process and get creative with camera techniques, lighting and green-screen.

Kids will work in small groups to take on various production roles to create an exciting and engaging short film! They will get the chance to expand their range of technical skills using the fantastic facilities available at ACMI, including our professional green-screen studio.

No prior filmmaking knowledge is required, although this course is ideal for kids who have either completed the Make a Movie course or who would like to extend their filmmaking with more advanced effects and lighting techniques.

On the last day of the workshop, they attend a red carpet film premiere with two invited guests.

Session times

Tickets must be purchased in advance. Parents do not need to attend the workshop - children are fully supervised at all times. Children will need to bring a packed lunch, as this is not provided in the cost of the workshop. In the event of cancellation, ticket holders are notified directly and a full refund is provided. Cost includes a USB flash drive containing your finished film. Recommended for children aged 9-14 years. Workshop runs from 10am - 4pm daily.
