WIN A FREE PLACE ON A PROFESSIONAL FILM-MAKING COURSE @ YATI!
We are officially launching a film-making competition for 14-19 year olds!
The fifteen best film-makers will win a FREE PLACE on a 12-week film-making course with the awesome Derek Oppong, from Sept-Dec every Saturday 10.30-2.30pm, with an optional AQA film-making qualification at the end.
The course is aimed at people who are really interested in making their own films. It is designed to help you to develop your skills – how to take a cool idea, create a storyboard, cast, direct and produce your own film series. You will be taught professional film-making skills, including trade secrets, techniques and post-production, you will also know how to get the most out of a smartphone, so you can keep producing high-quality movies after the course. The course is being led by YATI with a video-production company, Chocolate films.
The winners will also have their new movies published on YATI’s YouTube channel from Jan-March 2018. As we will be using social media, we want to explore the effect of social media or the mass media on our lives – but in a light-hearted, funny and clever way and use this theme to produce something positive, that will promote you as actors too.
HOW TO ENTER THE COMPETITION
Anyone aged 14-19 years old can enter, not just YATI members. Any winners who are not YATI members would need to pay the joining fee in September (£5 concessions – £10 full fee).
So make a 30-90 second film on a smartphone, and submit it via Dropbox or YouTube to email@example.com by Friday 30 June.
The theme of the course will explore the effect of social media on our lives – but in a light-hearted, funny and clever way. So we would love to see your ideas. But if you wish to submit something else, maybe even something that you have already made, then that is fine too. Really we are looking for potential, and most importantly people who can organise themselves!
