If you live on the Central Coast, have a bit of filmmaking experience and would like to make a 5 minute drama or doco, then sign up for this workshop.

12 October – 16 November  Sundays 10am – 5pm
Deadline for application: 5pm Friday 26 September 2014

We’re looking to put together two filmmaking teams to make a short film each. Tell us what interests you about making films and if you have any particular area of interest (sound, editor, camera operator, writer, director, producer).

Special workshops have been designed to help you develop your drama or doco – and we will provide all the equipment and support that you will need.

We’re focusing on a quality outcome, with the final films to be submitted for screening at Coasties Film Festival on 22-23 November.

Although this is a FREE fun course you will be working towards a professional outcome in your finished project.

Metro Screen is the leading independent screen learning and development hub in NSW, providing support for emerging and professional talent in the Australian screen industry for over 30 years. Metro Screen is working in partnership with Screen NSW to bring you this special film-making opportunity.
