Masterclasses – E.D.E.N. Digital 2021

As part of the E.D.E.N. Digital project we are hosting masterclasses on a range of filmmaking topics.

The masterclasses will cover topics such as storytelling through short films, creating a low budget film, cinematography, festival strategy and authentic storytelling.

All masterclasses are available for no cost and will be hosted via Zoom. The masterclasses are for ages 18+.

Abena Taylor-Smith | Storytelling through Short Films | Thursday 13th May, 7-9pm via Zoom. 
This masterclass will discuss the mystical process of settling on an idea, working with that idea in order for it to become a story; the tools used in pre-production such as loglines, outlines, synopses, moodboards and sizzle reels and how they can be helpful. On set demeanour, the importance of self-care; and navigating the honesty vs exposure dilemma of being a queer artist making queer work.
