Workshop #1: Vertical Film & Intro to Equipment

Saturday, December 13th – 2PM
The Vault Studio – 2440 Broad Street Regina (CBC Studios)

During this workshop, learn about shooting vertically oriented film and explore the filmic concepts and cinematic language inherent in this new frame. Practice a few techniques for vertical storytelling and get hands-on experience with the gear available for visionary independent filmmakers through the Filmpool. This will be a short (hour and a half) workshop focused on the gear that is available to you as a GST Artist, with some special attention paid to how to shoot vertically. There will be cameras on-hand for you to practice on, and you may bring your own gear if you’d like to explore how it can be used to create a film in the shape of our province. Other pieces we can look at (based on interest): dolly, jib, lighting, microphones (for those of you looking to capture narration or interviews), and the general use of the studio.

Because CBC building is officially closed on Saturday, we will have to meet at the same time and we will need to know how many are showing up so that you are not left out in the cold.

Workshop #2: Visual Storytelling

April 12th (Sun) 1pm – 6pm
The Vault Studio – 224 Broad Street Regina (CBC Studios)


The 2nd workshop in the Expanded Cinema Artist-in-Residence program at the Filmpool.


Guest Lecturer, Chrystene Ells, will run a jam-packed crash course that will change the way you plan, shoot, and edit films.


This seminar will outline a process of visual pre-production for film or animation, based on design principles, basic storytelling and visual progression: visual elements that greatly affect the impact and progression of any type of visual story, focusing particularly on the applications of these elements in film, video, and animation, and ways in which the application of design elements affects the psychological impact and structure when visually crafting a story.
