Bafta Scotland New Talent Award-winning filmmaker Robin Haig will lead a practical workshop on filmmaking and editing using a mobile phone, offering aspiring filmmakers the opportunity to use their own phone to make more interesting and experimental short films while learning new technical possibilities.

About the workshop

Robin Haig will give an introduction to filmmaking including; storyboarding, shot lists, composition, the use of different lenses as well as how to use natural light and sound. The workshop will allow participants to make a short film and edit it using one of the film editing apps available to their phone. Prior to the workshop, participants will be contacted about their phone and advised on which app to use depending on whether it is an iPhone or Android. Lens attachments will be available on the day to use by all participants and full instructions on how to use these will be given.

The short films will be perfect for instant social media or website content giving participants the opportunity to refine their filmmaking skills that can be developed further.

The workshop will be outdoors in Dunvegan Castle gardens with an editing tutorial indoors in one of the upstairs rooms at the castle.

Price: £35 includes entry ticket to Dunvegan Castle and Gardens and refreshments

Places are limited, for booking information email: suzy@atlasarts.org.uk
