Queer Filmmaking Workshop
The Queer Filmmaking Workshop provides an opportunity to amplify the voices of the LGBTIQ community by empowering real people to share their stories. Presented with The University of Melbourne’s Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), this workshop will provide the opportunity to learn fundamental filmmaking techniques.
The workshop is designed for budding filmmakers. This will be a very practical and collaborative workshop for a small group of people to write, direct, shoot and edit a two-minute film together.
As a group, participants
– Write a short script
– Draw storyboards
– Shoot the film
– Edit the film
The University of Melbourne’s Victorian College of the Arts will offer one of the participants the opportunity to attend three specialised industry guest lectures as part of the VCA Film & TV Foundations Part-Time Filmmaking course. Workshop coordinator, Kate Lefoe is a filmmaker and graduate from the VCA with a Masters of Film and Television (Narrative).
