Last week we had the pleasure of running a workshop on micro-budget filmmaking at Sea Change Film Festival held on Tiree, the most westerly island in the Inner Hebrides!
The festival celebrates women behind the camera, which meant that Caitlin and Sophie from the GMAC team had the pleasure of meeting some incredible female filmmakers and watching a whole host of shorts and features. Highlights included Nina Menkes’ Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power, Julia Parks’ Seaweed, and a sensory camera-less film workshop with artist-filmmakers Lucy Bergman & Joanna Byrne.
We were particularly excited to screen the work of Little Pictures filmmaker Shanine Gallagher, and hear about her experience of making her first commissioned short with the support of GMAC and Screen Scotland. This was a brilliant opportunity for people in the early stages of their filmmaking journey to ask any questions in an informal setting and hear about the experiences of our wonderful alumni.
Keep an eye out for upcoming GMAC events in Glasgow and further a field on our social channels – we’d love to see you!
