This series of workshops is designed to take you through filmmaking techniques and the tools and equipment for shooting, recording sound and editing. For the purposes of teaching in the classroom, or recording from home, we will work with the iPad as a complete system for shooting and editing. Online resources for preparation will be provided in advance to educators to maximize the time and experience of the workshops. Sessions are scheduled to follow the filmmaking process as you go along.
