Filmmaking Workshop

For Anyone and Everyone

For Kids, For Adults, For Everyone Who Wants to Create

In this personalized workshop we build on any previous experience (no experience necessary!) and focus on what you, or your kids would like to learn and the types of filmmaking skills you want to have.

We can work with any technology available to you. At minimum we'll need to be able to video chat. 

The Workshop Plan

Before Workshop Day

The Day of The Workshop

Afterwards

Initial meeting

We'll have a chat prior to your workshop to discuss you or your child's previous movie making experience. What types of movies do you like/want to make? What technology do you have available?

pre-production

The day of, we'll start with a lesson on some basics (or more advanced techniques, depending). Story and the hero's journey, composing your shots, on set roles - this section of learning includes lots of visuals, examples, and take home worksheets.

make a movie

Participants will create a film based on the plan created in pre-production. I will be either present via video chat, or available by phone to support the filming process. Afterwards we will edit together using any means available. If the kids are very young, there will be an option for me to edit for them based on their vision for the film.

screening your film

Your film can be sent to you, uploaded for sharing, and we can even hold a virtual film screening to share you or your child's creation with friends and family via Zoom!

Hey! I'm Morgaine and I'm so excited to create a film with you!

Most recently her visual essay style documentary "ANTHROPO a story about fungi in four parts" screened at the American Anthropology Association's Society for Visual Anthropology Film and Media Festival, and the Evergreen Short Film Showcase. Morgaine studied film and anthropology at Simon Fraser University and combines the two storytelling practices and methods in her work today.
