E.D.E.N. Shorts 2020/21
E.D.E.N. Shorts 2020/21, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, is our filmmaking course for the LGBTQ+ community where a short film raising awareness on important topics decided by the LGBTQ+ community will be produced.
E.D.E.N. Shorts 2020/21 launched February 2020 in Sheffield via in-person filmmaking workshops, where 16 members of the LGBTQ+ community were set to produce a short film raising awareness on important LGBTQ+ issues. The group had attended five in-person workshops that covered areas of filmmaking – however, due to COVID-19 we had to postpone the project in the planning stage.
Given the current ongoing circumstances E.D.E.N. Film Productions have decided to adapt the project online. E.D.E.N. Shorts members were invited to join the online project and with spaces left we also invited members from our online E.D.E.N. Digital project.
The project will include:
* Interactive online filmmaking workshops.
* Online planning sessions, group discussions and communal editing sessions.
* 1-2-1 Zoom call for each participant to talk to the tutors about their filmmaking and the project.
* One short film will be produced and premiered via an online community screening.
E.D.E.N. Shorts workshops and activities will be led by award-winning filmmaker Brett Chapman and E.D.E.N. Film Productions’ founder, Claire Watkinson.
