Learn To Shoot


For children aged 8 – 13 years who are wanting to start their film making journey. Designed to give the basics of filmmaking, this workshop will include:

  • Scene structure, including camera angles and visual story telling options.
  • Story board development – how to visually tell a story
  • Filming a scene

Each student will develop a short storyboard and then work in pairs to film their pieces. Students will take on the key roles of camera operator/ director and actor / talent, swapping between the roles so they both get a turn.

Each student will be required to bring along their own filming device, either a camera or a phone.


Sunday 26 April, 10am-12pm – Basement,  – HOTA, Home of the Arts

Ages 8-13
Cost: $10, bookings required

Please note parents are required to stay onsite at HOTA while kids are participating in the workshop.
