D.I.Y. Filmmaking with the JUST EAT IT team
April 23, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join the filmmakers behind Just Eat It and The Clean Bin Project for a workshop on D.I.Y. Filmmaking. Using their own films as a case study, Grant Baldwin and Jenny Rustemeyer will discuss making impact documentaries from conception through to grassroots audience engagement.
$50 members / $75 non-members
With clips and examples, they’ll run through the nitty gritty of how they made their successful documentaries as well as some key lessons learned. This workshop is an opportunity to ask questions, have an open conversation about the realities of filmmaking, and spark ideas for your own projects. The afternoon will be presented in three general parts:
• Production Budgets: How much is this thing going to cost and how will I pay for it?
• Director’s tips: Increasing your production value without increasing your budget
• Impact: When the film is done the work begins.
Before the workshop, you are encouraged to watch both of their films:
The Clean Bin Project will be screening at the Victoria Event Centre on April 21 presented by Surfrider Foundation. There will be beer and food, and Jenny Rustemeyer will do a Q&A after the screening.
Just Eat It can be viewed online for FREE at Knowledge Network
