The best way to learn filmmaking is by doing it

Learn the fundamental skills of filmmaking so you can submit a film to Cinespace’s 123 Film Competition, as part of Brimbank City Council’s Be Bold! Festival. 


There’ll be three support workshops, each focusing on a different technical aspect of the craft:


Camera & Lighting

Sat 27 Aug 2022, 9am-5pm

St Albans Community Centre / The Bowery Theatre

Breathe life into your vision with the right lighting, as director of photography Tavis Pinnington leads you through the “how” and “why” of lights and cameras.



Sat 3 Sep 2022, 10am-5pm

St Albans Community Centre / The Bowery Theatre

Don’t think sound is important? Think again. Sound recordist Andre Octavio proves how quality sound can elevate your projects.



Sat 10 Sep 2022, 10am-5pm

Nail those transitions as director and cinematographer Aydin Bozkurt walks you through professional editing software recognised by the industry. 


The workshops will be run by industry professionals who will guide you through the nuts and bolts of each discipline in intimate, practical learning environments. Each workshop will combine theory and practical learning for a comprehensive course in filmmaking.


Lunch and snacks will be provided - it’s a big day, you’ll need the fuel!


Apply as a group, or an individual. Sign up for one, two, or all three for a complete introduction to industry-standard filmmaking. Come brush up on your skills!


Spots are limited, and it’s first in best dressed. 


After the workshops we want you to say to your friends, “Let’s make a film!


And remember: the theme for the festival is Living Our Culture, so get writing and we’ll see you in the studio!


The workshops are designed for young people aged 16-24. You must live, work or study in the Brimbank area and identify as BIPOC/CALD creatives. You must also submit a film to the 123 Film Competition. The workshops will be held around the Brimbank area.

This project is supported by Creative Brimbank
