If you’ve ever fancied having a go at making your own films, this week’s guest is here to tell you how you can – with just a smart phone or an iPad!
Gillian Bates will be in the studio with the Girls Around Town to talk about how she and George Bassett set up Can-Do Film back in 2014 to encourage the development and creation of great low and no budget film on both a regional and national scale.
She’ll have news of upcoming workshops in and around Nottinghamshire. Whether you want to start with just the basics and Make A Movie In A Day or delve a little deeper over two days, you’ll have the opportunity to shoot and edit your own short film. No iPad? No worries – you can even borrow one for the course!
Gillian will also be talking about the first Can-Do Film Festival in 2015, plans for the next one in 2017 and their two pop-up cinemas – one in a converted VW camper and the other in a velvet-walled marquee with vintage cinema seats – which are available to hire for screenings at events.
Join Gillian, June and Tina on air or listen online from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday. In the meantime, if you want to see the sort of thing you could achieve with Can-Do, why not take a look here at some of the films made by participants on previous courses?
