An Introduction to Digital Filmmaking
A City Eye workshop for developing filmmakers and photographers
suchThis workshop is perfect for aspiring filmmakers and photographers, as well as beginners with some experience looking to build their skills in a fun and practical manner. Participants with their own cameras are strongly advised to bring them along for the best experience.
You will learn a variety of filmmaker basics, from framing and composition to white balance and three-point lighting. Crucially, you will learn the difference between ISO, aperture and shutter speed so that you can finally get off 'auto' mode and plan your shots or react on-the-fly with confidence.
Please note, booking in advance is essential for this event.
Since graduating from Solent University in 2017, Aaron West has enjoyed a variety of freelance projects in the film industry, in particular the short thriller 'Alien: Containment,' produced in collaboration with 20th Century Fox to celebrate 40 years since the release of Ridley Scott's ground-breaking film. More recently, Aaron has overseen production for Collaborative Media, a London-based film company producing corporate video and documentary programmes broadcast on Sky Channel 182. In this role he also wrote numerous scripts for documentary, including 'Construction in the UK: Setting the Stage' which explored the development of green technology in construction and heavy industries in post-Brexit Britain. He has won some awards for the writing of short narrative films such as his directorial debut 'The Straight & Narrow.' As City Eye's newly appointed Production Manager, he is keen to use his knowledge and experience to push the organisation to even greater heights through its own projects and in its support of established and developing filmmakers.
