About the Event

An online workshop series using your smartphone to make a film, ending with an in-person screening with Ben Williams!

Held Tuesday evenings online from 6-9PM CST

Session 1:  We will learn how to use a smartphone to capture footage, begin to brainstorm ideas, and draft the story you want to tell.

Session 2: Focus will be on the aesthetics and inspiration for your film while learning editing techniques.

Session 3: Final session to recap, helping students finalize and complete their project. This is the class to ask all final questions before the films are screen ready. 

Session 4: Public in-person screening with Ben Williams.

For the last 8 years Ben has mentored and trained folks across Manitoba – six of those years working for the Winnipeg Film Group as the Production Centre Director. He is also a co-founder and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Afro Prairie Film Festival. Ben studied digital filmmaking at New York Film Academy in Manhattan and has a BA in Graphic Design with Magna Cum Laude honours and a minor focus in fine art from Central State University in Ohio. Prior to his work in Canada as a permanent resident, he worked for 15+ years in digital media studios in NYC, Chicago and Shanghai, and freelanced as a digital editor and producer across the United States.
