Shepparton Upskilling Workshop
Open Channel recently loaded up the mobile training unit with lights, cameras, reflector boards, sandbags, and all other crucial filmmaking kit, and headed out to Shepparton for a day-long Upskilling Workshop. Housed in the creative comfort of a studio space at the Shepparton Art Gallery, the workshop drew together a diverse group of locals, from teenagers through to professionals all of whom were there with the specific goal of polishing up their filmmaking skills.
Advice was given to the participants regarding specific projects and sharing personal experiences to explore ways to ‘find your story’, improve camera and lighting skills, master ‘the art of the interview’ and structure post-production work-flow, amongst other topics.
A great day was had by all, with energetic and creative conversations shared throughout the day. By 5pm the workshop drew to an end, the gear was back in the OC mobile training unit and the tutors set off back to Melbourne, as the sun set on the town of Shepparton. Another day, another filmmaking workshop in the can!
