The teachers are Steph Bursill, Aimee Volkofsky and Otis Filley.
They will be looking at movement warm up, voice exercises, brainstorming a short film idea story, how to use a camera and then shoot some scenes with the kids involved in a hands on approach. This is a great opportunity for local kids to learn some of the magic and fun of filmmaking and storytelling through film.
Film makers include Steph Bursill who has had many years of experience acting in TV, short films, theatre and commercials, and worked recently as a screenwriter in China on a children’s animation film.
Aimee Volkovsky is a film and media maker who has lived and worked in western NSW most of her life. Thirteen years with the ABC has seen her film and document people and events all over the country.
Otis Filley works as a videographer, editor and writer. He has worked with Network 10, SBS and NITV. His production company was awarded funding for the Menindee Film Hub Project and is currently holding documentary filmmaking workshops for students in Menindee.
This workshop has been made possible with funding from FRRR, The Bertalli Family Foundation, Foundation Broken Hill and Maari Ma Broken Hill; and support from West Darling Arts.
There is a lot of film and TV that has been shot in Far West NSW recently, including Mad Max, Total Control and RFDS just in the last two years. This workshop will be a great opportunity to learn the story making process.
