Training in image, video and acting for children with Eudoxie Gnoulla

This workshop will be based on how to make children be involved in their own creation. It is about putting them in a practical situation to boost their intelligence to understand filmmaking and its subtleties. For this, there will be a need to have technical equipment during the training (a video projector and a camera). The children will be able to make accessories, for example, a boom etc… With the wise eye of the trainer, the child will be the creator and the critic of his work. This method of training will help him understand at best the film process and all the people involved, in particular, the director, the scriptwriter, the actor, the boom operator, the director of the actor, the producer etc. …


Pocket Film by Ismael Tall

Pocket film is an initiation and an education to the image. Education to image is a training to the cinematographic language with a camcorder or a cell phone. The goal is to let the child express himself through images and also beware of the danger of images on social networks. For a short training like this, it will be just about initiation to the filmic tool to tell his daily life with a camcorder or a cell phone.
