The bridge organisation Artswork, representing the south east and based in Southampton, held a conference for educators at the BFI on Thursday 23 October 2014. The conference looked at ways of incorporating creative media production into Artsmark practices in schools. One of the workshops encouraged film making in the classroom, taking inspiration from the Lumière Minutes exercise from the Cent Ans de Jeunesse programme. My presentation slides are below:
Here are their Minutes filmed during the hour long workshop in which delegates were encouraged to watch/notice their environment and capture/film an unscripted Southbank moment with simple Flip cameras or their own mobile devices. We then watched/analysed some of their Minutes on the big screen in light of some original Lumière footage and reflected on the experience.
Here are the delegates’ minute-long moments from both morning and afternoon workshops:
Parts of the conference were captured and edited by a professional film making crew on the same day for immediate screening at the close of the conference, accessible here: Artsmark Conference 2014 from Millstream Productions.
