Taking play at Castletroy College on November 5 was the first of a series of workshops for Students wishing to study film making for transition year and beyond.

With an audience made up of TY and 5th year students, as well as some teaching staff, LSAD/ TUS lecturer, Simon McGuire spoke of his experience in taking a simple short film idea and realising through practical and theoretical planning to get it to screen.

Students began with a pitching session of their film ideas where they democratically choose their favourite script to make over the coming months. Their mission to enter the completed film to the Fresh Film Festival in 2022. Not an easy challenge for a student group who haven’t attempted this before, but their enthusiasm certainly showed throughout the workshop.

Simon’s goal was to take the chosen idea and brain storm with the students through practical demonstration and discussions, to help inspire them to realise the narrative and processes needed to bring the film to life.

Camera composition, as well as directing techniques were imparted to students as well as what to look out for when selecting locations and positioning actors in a scene.

The Castletroy Students will now move onto the scripting process as well as completing the preproduction planning before filming begins.

As production nears its end, Simon will return once again to give the students a workshop on post production for short film, where students will learn multiple editing processes for content and narrative creation.

More on this story soon.
