Getting Your Film Made (6pm)

Barney Norris made his first short film last year, after a decade of working in theatre and fiction. In this workshop, he will talk about the challenges he faced in creating his film, and the process of bringing the story to production. A workshop for those who are beginning to explore the potential of film, and would like to understand more about the practical steps of getting a short together.

Following on these workshops will be an opportunity to network with some brilliant individuals from the film industry such as writers, producers and directors. So if you have questions about films of any nature which you need answering we would love to see you there.
