Chance to learn from film professional

Budding moviemakers will have the opportunity to work with professional videographer Colleen Hughson on a project to be premiered at the Fun4Kids Festival in June.

Experimental videos made by participants in a free film making workshop will be shown as part of the “Oceanarium” zone at the festival.

Oceanarium is a multi-artwork installation that is being created especially for Fun4Kids. Four local artists will use a combination of textile art, sculpture and video to recreate the sensory richness of Warrnambool’s unique marine environment.

These films will use crowd-sourced footage of Warrnambool’s coast and Deakin University Marine Biology footage and will be played on analogue television screens and projectors embedded in the sculpture.

The workshop will cover editing techniques in iMovie, montage editing, transitions, sound effects and music.

No previous experience is necessary and all equipment is provided.

Ms Hughson said that this workshop is for anyone who has ever wanted to learn how to edit their videos, have a better understanding of iMovie or get involved in the Fun4Kids Festival.

“Participants will get to have a good play with video editing software and by the end of the one-day workshop, they will have created their own experimental film and have had a lot of fun doing it,” she said.

“I aim to teach everyone involved the basics of using iMovie, as well as plenty of handy tips and tricks about film editing in general, so I am hoping participants will walk away from the workshop having learnt a lot.”

“The footage that has been submitted for the Oceanarium project is fantastic, so you will have access to really beautiful imagery, making editing really enjoyable.”

The workshop will be held at the Warrnambool Primary School library on Jamieson Street on Saturday April 30 from 10am until 4.30pm.

Spaces are limited. For more information please contact Colleen on colleen [dot] firstladies [at] gmail [dot] com or 1300 724 330.
