The 6 filmmakers are spending 6 intensive days making short films made of videos, drawings and photos. Not only do they have to write, direct, shoot and star in their own films, they also are learning how to edit, polish and put sound and music to their movies. Bella Coola participants are building on tech skills they have already learned and the Sechelt participants are learning from scratch!
It’s amazing what you an accomplish in less than a week!
With the Our World influence the filmmakers are also encouraged to incorporate language into each piece.
Clearly the workshop is intense, not only do the participants spend all day making films, they also get to check out the documentaries screening at the festival in the evening.
