School Holiday Program ACMI presents

Advanced Make a Movie

Scroll to content

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

Kids work in small groups to take on various production roles to create an exciting and engaging short film. They 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 completed the Make a Movie course or who would like to extend their filmmaking with more advanced effects and lighting techniques.
