The Participatory Action Research around the Farmhouse project will be filmed by “Well Said” If you have media skills you would like to share, or want to learn about film making, or want to join and help out in a crew. WS are looking for all these kinds of people.
‘Well Said’ is a media project idea that Plantation Productions, have been developing over the last year in response to the ongoing requests from individuals with great ideas and who need help in making them happen.
We want to deliver creative media workshops, master classes and events that would provide local volunteers and participants the opportunity to learn new creative skills enabling them to produce their own stories, films and articles.
We think this is a great idea as the world has become absorbed in watching worn, run-of-the-mil, digital content rather than communicating and voicing its own ideas.
Media Literacy is an essential part of modern day life and we would like to give people from the Govan area a chance to be heard and share their life experience in a positive and inspiring way.
Activities will consist of an introduction to all aspects of film production – from developing stories and ideas to learning technical camera, lighting and sound recording, producing, directing and post-production.
Master classes would be additional to the workshops, honing skills and encouraging participants to push themselves creatively, these sessions would be essential to developing people to produce high quality results, which they can be proud of. Participatory filmmaking delivers on many levels including confidence and team building skills.
The Well Said group will run every Tuesday from 1pm to 5pm, at Plantation Productions, The Portal 978 Govan Road, Glasgow Web: http://plantation.org.uk/well-said Phone: 0141 445 1666
Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday.
