Let’s Shoot @ RMIT November 2023
Let’s Shoot is back for November! Join in for an introduction to practical filmmaking
Open to anyone 18+, this two part workshop will introduce you to filmmaking and production theory onsite at SNH before heading to the RMIT media precinct to put your knowledge into practice, using real cameras, sound and lighting equipment, and exploring 3D animated spaces.
The workshop takes place over two days:
- Day One:
Monday 20 November | 10am – 12:30pm
The Sussex Neighbourhood House course will cover filmmaking theory and camerawork techniques for working on a TV or film set. It’ll also cover the concepts of pre-production, lighting and sound design considerations. The SNH component will introduce industry-grade editing software that’s freely available to use and equip students with the skills to edit footage, colour correct, and do basic visual effects including with Da Vinci and Blender.
- Day Two:
Tuesday 21 November | 10am – 12:30pm
The RMIT component of the course will give a realistic and hands-on practical experience with genuine industry standard cameras, lighting and sound equipment for TV production. Participants will have the opportunity to film their own program and try stage managing, doing the camera work, controlling lighting, and even being on film themselves. Participants will also gain an understanding of digital VFX screen spaces involving animation software and 3D imaging using greenscreen backdrops and Unreal Engine.
