Student Calum MacLean from Inverness, who is about to embark on a course in Gaelic media at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, thoroughly enjoyed his FilmG master-class, being his first ever steps into film-making.
Calum said: “It was great. It opened my eyes as to how a drama could be shot and what to expect. I’m now looking forward to making my own film.”
The aim of the weekend workshop was to give new film-makers grounding in how to make a three to five minute short production as well as building the participants’ confidence to take on their own projects. Along with providing these new skills, the weekend also gave participants the chance to share their ideas and work in collaboration with each other.
The picture below shows tutors Keith Ingram, Helen MacKinnon, Duncan McDonald,Becky Thompson & Stuart Hepburn with the delegates.
