WEST Cork Televsion, West Cork Time’s internet TV partner station will host a FREE Community filmmaking workshop at the upcoming Corona Fastnet Short Film Festival in Schull.

The aim of the workshop is to train local groups and individuals to provide video coverage / archiving for their community and the region as a whole.

This workshop is designed for those who have no training whatsoever and may be somewhat intimidated by the prospect of a foray into the media world.

David Bickley from West Cork Televison said, “We are looking for the young and the old to step up with whatever equipment they can lay their hands on, and with a few simple rules and guidelines produce clear stories and reflections from and for their communities.”

The workshop is facilitated by Clonakilty-based broadcast television production company Alchemy Electronic Arts, with fully qualified level 9 trainers and educators.

The workshop runs from 12pm to 2pm on Saturday, May 26th in The Courtyard, Schull.
