Lights, Camera Action! Workshops for 12-15 year olds

Sun 21 Feb - Sun 28 Mar

FILM PRODUCTION WORKSHOPS For Kids aged 12-15 years old

To assist our future young filmmakers, screenPLAY is running ‘LIGHTS, CAMERA ACTION’, a series of six workshops to help transform story ideas to the big screen. From story-telling, to film production and through to the final edit, the ‘LIGHTS CAMERA ACTION’ workshops will help to make your stories come to life.

Workshops will take place on six consecutive Sundays, commencing on Sunday 23 February and continue to Sunday 29 March, running from 9am to 12pm each week. Cost for the series of six workshops is $250 per person.

Workshops for 12-15 year olds will be held in the Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre Conference Room and are facilitated by Jas Shennan who has recently moved to Cairns after a career spanning nearly 50 years in film and television.

Jas trained in fine art and stage design and after graduating from the London Film School worked at the BBC on documentaries and dramas. He emigrated to Australia and has worked as a director, producer, cameraman and editor on many television documentaries, dramas, reality shows and in the corporate arena. Jas is also an experienced teacher and has taught in several Sydney educational institutions including Head of Post Production at the Sydney Film School. He is looking forward to sharing his broad knowledge of storytelling with the next generation of digital media artists.

Have some fun and give it a go, come and learn stacks of skills and share your stories on the BIG screen.

Limited spaces available.
