You’re going to make some films!

You’re going to choose scenes from some cool films, and you’re going to recreate them as closely as possible. This will involve choosing some scenes, planning out how you’ll film it, organising costumes and props, filming, editing, seeking feedback and improving your films (hopefully you’ll learn something about framing, filming, lighting, sound, and planning).

It’d be great if you already had a device capable of filming (a phone or tablet will work fine for our purposes).

You’ll be expected to direct others to be in your film, and therefore you'll be expected to act in someone else’s film. If you're horrendously camera-shy, you can bring along a mask or something, but these will be group projects!
