Ffilm Platfform: Documentary Film

Ages 14 – 25

5 – 8 August 2024

Wales Millennium Centre

Are you 14–25 years old and interested in learning how to shoot your own documentary?

Over a set of dynamic and fast-paced video-making workshops you'll work through the fundamentals of shooting documentary film. You'll get hands-on with high-end kit and will be given the chance to put your own creative stamp on the final films.

For the relative newcomer looking to learn more, these sessions will provide you with all the tools to make a great film, but also suits those who took part in our music video course in May 2024.

As well as practical skills you’ll also learn film theory and other transferable skills - so even if you don’t have access to high-end kit, skills taken from this course can easily be transferred to your own work.

Who is teaching the course?

Jamie Panton has been freelancing as a videographer for a decade. Having started with little money and just a single DSLR and sound recorder he understands how to work to tight budgets and build up a video business from the ground up. His main work revolves around shooting documentaries and music videos, as well as doing corporate work.

He has a passion for creating intimate documentaries, often creating pieces around mental health struggles and raising awareness of struggles people face. Jamie’s love of avant-garde cinema and old obscure films can be seen in his music video work.

Jamie loves teaching and passing on his passion for making videos and seeing what learners come up with during his dynamic and fast-paced workshops.

Do I need any skills or experience to take part?

No – this course is open to all levels and abilities.

When is it?

The course runs for 4 days between 5 and 8 August from 12pm to 6pm.

How do I book?

Book your place by clicking on the booking button on this page. Please make sure you can attend all 4 days of the course.

If this course is sold out, please add your details to our waiting list and we'll be in touch if a place becomes available.
