Catalyst Film /// Film Production Taster Workshops with Simon Oblescak
Wondering what it's like to study Film Production at Catalyst Film? Then what a better way to start than to learn by doing. Our Filmmaking taster workshops are an extension to our Virtual Open Days and a great opportunity to meet our team here in Berlin
- Working to a brief -
Guided by film creative Simon Oblescak, our online taster workshop will throw you straight into what we call "an impossible brief". You'll be assigned to a small crew and challenged to collaboratively ideate and produce a 1-minute film that you will produce and deliver online. This workshop will get your narrative juices flowing while we guide you through our learning approach.
We will put your storytelling and narrative building skills to work, whilst exploring how to be creative working with limitations and setting up resourceful and adaptable workflows. Your crew will be supported by our tutors and more Catalyst students, so you can also use the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about joining our film production courses next summer or fall.
This workshop in particular is an adaptation from our online Filmmaking Day, which takes place over a whole day at the start of the first semester of our 1 and 3-year Film Production degree courses.
Get ready to start flexing your filmmaking skills!
