Workshops

We offer artist led workshops to create collections of film material on bespoke themes.

We work with both new and experienced filmmakers and moving image artists to practice slowing down to hone our gaze, and refreshing the way we look at the world around us.

We use our footage to make both individual and collaborative films.

We create live film-mixing performances.

Live Film Mixing

Inspiring Conversation

Our filmmaking workshops explore how it feels to slow down into a creative, mindful space of looking and playing. ​ We consider how the filmmaking experience (even using our phone-cameras) can trigger new seeing and creative engagements with the world and each other in a daily context.

Info

Workshops can be tailored for participants from 7 years+ and of any skillset. They can take place inside or outside in nature as part of a walk. ​ Rebecca has been making films for twenty years, working with both adults and children. She holds a PhD in Philosophy through the practice of filmmaking and her teaching supports participants to use and explore film as self expression.   More info about us HERE

Rebecca E Marshall guides participants to make new film and audio material. We film personal and found objects. We also work with photographs, drawings, writing and poetry. ​ New and archive footage is gathered together to make films as a collaborative experience. We work with both personal and public archive material. Participants (one-to-one or in groups) are supported by Rebecca to explore inner and outer worlds. No previous filmmaking skills are required.  ​ We make and record homemade sound effects and voice-over.

Footage from workshops can be gathered to create a live film-mix as a celebratory, one-off event. Rebecca mixes, layers and plays with the material as a live cinematic projection.   New, accidental connections are made as new image combinations emerge.  ​ The event can incorporate live spoken word, performance and live music.

Filmmaking

We offer two types of filmmaking workshops.

 

Our first is a tabletop workshop that takes place indoors. Responding to themes and ideas as inspiration, Rachel Pearson supports the creation of small sets or dioramas with specially chosen objects and lighting.

Rebecca E Marshall works with participants to film the sets, and to consider framing, depth, colour, light, shadow and movement.  In this way, participants (one-to-one or in groups) are supported to explore inner and outer worlds. 

In our tabletop workshops, we film and respond to both personal treasures and found objects. These can include photographs, artworks, writing and poetry, drawing from both personal and public archives and collections. We draw from Rachel's collection of found objects and from her work as a practicing silversmith.

We make and record homemade sound effects and voice-over.

Our second type of workshop is a walk in nature with our cameras. Both new and experienced filmmakers and artists can participate as part of a small group or in a one-to-one session. The aim of the walk is to slow down and observe with our cameras the layers, shadows, light, textures and movements that are revealed when we pay deep attention to details of the landscape. Rather than focussing on producing a film as a core outcome, the intention of this workshop is to use our lens as a tool to refresh our attention.

We consider how the processes in filmmaking can support us in finding, honing and protecting our creative, curious, questioning, conversational and authentic voice.
