Youth Filmmakers 2022

  • Workshop

Foróige Portlaoise UBU Youth Service members are coming together on Cruinniú na nÓg to meet with professional Laois filmmakers that will mentor the group to develop a short film.

This workshop is not available to the public. 

This creative workshop is a forum to discuss the type of film the young people want to make as well as taster sessions on script writing, lighting and camera work. From idea generation to script writing, through shooting and editing a short, the young people will be supported to bring their film from page to screen.

It will also explore the production elements that are required when making a film including timelines, preferred locations, budget, crew, and the structure of the film.

The primary objective of of this day long workshop is to generate interest within the group to commit to a series of weekly sessions building to a day long / 2 day shoot, with post-production, editing and laying of soundtrack, etc.

The aim is to align this project with the Foróige summer youth project scheme and have a premiere screening in late July at Dunamaise Arts Centre.
