Westmeath Teenagers Invited to Sign Up for Athlone Film Camp

Athlone Film Camp

Harp Media presents a collaborative series of filmmaking workshops for young people aged 13-18. No previous filmmaking experience is needed!

The Athlone Film Camp will look at all stages involved in the filmmaking process. The course will cover everything from writing the script to planning and shooting a movie and will incorporate both theoretical and practical learning.

Over the course, you will plan and shoot your own short film which will then be edited by the Harp team. You will be presented with a copy of your film, complete with title card and credits. You will also be awarded a certificate of completion from Harp Media.

Harp Media aim to show students the benefit of having a creative outlet and how the skills acquired through filmmaking can transfer to other aspects of their lives. We will also aim to highlight the importance and benefit of teamwork in a fun and inclusive way.

The following modules will be explored over the four day Athlone Film Camp:
Module 1: Storytelling and Screen Writing
Module 2: Introduction to acting for the camera
Module 3: Producing, Technical roles
Module 4: Introduction to Directing
Module 5: Film Shoot

This is a weeklong camp, taking place from the 4th-7th of June 2024 from 11 am – 4 pm each day, with a screening on the 15th of June at Dean Crowe Theatre, Athlone.

There is no charge for this film camp but booking is required. Contact arts@westmeathcoco.ie with any queries.
