Youth Team Event – Smartphone Scenes

Within GMAC Film, the Youth Team are responsible for organising events for other young people 16-25 to get them engaged in filmmaking! 

On the 17th of November, we are hosting Smartphones Scenes at our offices in Trongate 103.  

This 3-hour event will run from 5-8pm and it will involve participants prepping, shooting and editing a 90 second short film in teams with only their mobile phones. It is an informal event which will help students broaden their creativity and understanding of film production with other likeminded new filmmakers! 

You will be allocated into groups to make your film on arrival, and as such your group will be tasked to create an idea, film the short and edit it all on the night. Afterwards, each film that has been produced will be screened towards the end of the night in our cinema space! 

Items that you should bring with you: 

  • Smartphone (make sure you have free storage space!)
  • Pre-downloaded editing software on your smartphone. 
  • For Apple users, we recommend downloading iMovie  
  • For Android users, we recommend downloading YouCut – Video  
    Editor & Maker
