Starting from the 7 March and for three weeks, the MSA will be hosting a series of fun hands-on workshops that aim to educate eleven to fifteen-year olds on how to make a film on their phone in a total of sixteen hours.
The project seeks to educate and inspire Malta’s youth on the art of film making through screenwriting, sound, filming and editing. It comprises a series of four hands-on workshops in which participants will be producing their own film from scratch, using nothing but a smartphone and open-source software.
They’ll be taken through the creative process step by step, starting with the basics of storytelling from screenwriter Cassi Camilleri, capturing and effectively using sound with sound designer and musician Yasmin Kuymizakis, as well as getting to grips with directing and editing with director Keith Tedesco and editor Franny Schembri.
With the support of Arts Council Malta and Creative Europe Desk Malta, the films produced at the Littlebot Film Labs will be shown at the EFA’s Young Audience Film Awards.
The workshops are scheduled as follows:
Screenwriting: 7th, 8th, 9th March from 4pm till 8pm
Sound: 14th, 15th, 16th March from 4pm till 8pm
Filming: 21st, 22nd, 23rd March from 4pm till 8pm
Editing: 28th, 29th, 30th March from 4pm till 8pm
All workshops will be held at the Malta Society of Arts at Palazzo de La Salle, 219 Republic Street in Valletta. Click here for more information.
