More Fleadh Workshops

19th June 2009

The Galway Film Fleadh in conjunction with the Galway Film Centre has announced that American filmmaker Jon Jost (All The Vermeers in New York, Over Here) will host a five-day workshop during the Fleadh, beginning on Tuesday July 7.

The aim of the workshop is to familiarize participants with the myriad qualities which small digital DV and HDV cameras possess and to experiment in using these capacities in a creative manner. The workshop will also focus on the various types of in camera effects and how best to combine these with non-linear computer editing systems.

Those attending the workshop are advised to bring a DV or HDV (or Hi8) Camera and if possible a notebook computer which can be used for editing. The workshop will culminate on Sunday July 12 where participants will have the opportunity to screen the short films which they will make in the workshop at a special screening in the Cinemobile.
