E.D.E.N. Digital 2021 is an online filmmaking project for the LGBTQ+ community funded by Comic Relief’s LGBTQ+ COVID-19 Recovery Fund, in partnership with METRO Charity, Yorkshire MESMAC and Birmingham LGBT.
E.D.E.N. Digital 2021 launched in February and will engage 18 members of the LGBTQ+ community in 15, 2-hour interactive online filmmaking workshops, covering storytelling techniques, sound recording and editing. Alongside group discussions, feedback sessions and 1-2-1 Zoom call for each participant on the project.
The aim of the course is to empower the participants with all the tools they need to make a film using just their phone, or whatever camera they have available. The short films produced on the project will be premiered via an online community screening.
The project is being delivered by award-winning filmmaker Brett Chapman and E.D.E.N. Film Productions’ CEO and Founder Claire Watkinson.
There will also be 5 online masterclasses covering a range of filmmaking topics, full details can be found HERE.
