March On Film Introduction to Film Making 1 and 2 Day Workshops

At March On Film we believe that film is a positive creative tool that students can use to tell their own unique stories while also gaining confidence, learning new skills and having fun in the process.  For this reason, in conjunction with the Competition which is held in the month of March, we have also developed film making workshops that will teach your students the fundamentals of film making.

1 Day Introduction to Film Making Workshop

The 1 Day course is aimed at teaching a class of up to 25 students the core concepts of Film Making.  A representative from March On Film will come to your school and over the course of a day run through the three major stages of Film Making comprising Pre Production, Production and Post Production.

By the end of the day your students will have been shown the fundamentals of film making and will understand how a film is put together. With this knowledge they can start working on making other short films throughout the year in preparation for the March On Film Competition itself. After entering the competition they will have a chance to win awards and film related prizes, as well as seeing their own films on the big screen.
