|New Course| Low Budget Science Film Making

Filmmaking

In this course we’ll be dealing with knowledge transfer in Science: how can researchers inform the general public — and also funders… — about their work. This 5-​day film-​making course will take you through all the stages of making a short documentary about your research. It includes: documentary theory, pre-​production, production, post-​production, and promoting your film. Each day will combine learning theory in the classroom, with practical, hands-​on experience of filming techniques, and analysing footage. Each participant will have the opportunity to be involved in every stage of the film-​making process. They are invited to make their own finished film during the course’s 5 days.
