Speaker information

Michael Yorke, Iindependent documentary filmmaker and anthropologist

This is a practical hands-on week with digital video cameras designed for participants with non-professional or no previous filming experience.

Five intensive 9-hour days working with award-winning independent documentary filmmaker and anthropologist, Michael Yorke. We provide the equipment - you learn to use a camera to broadcast quality standards.

The course will develop the students’ critical skills of film analysis through the practical application and experience of shooting film exercises and manipulating digital media. It demystifies the process of filmmaking and opens new ways of visual reading and understanding. Through the hands-on experience of producing a 1-5 minute video exercise, you will obtain an informed critical insight of the representational capacity of digital video. You will develop and experiment with the ‘pro-filmic’ and the ‘filmic’ realities of image-driven documentation and narrative structure.
