FILMMAKING IN SCHOOLS
Not content with simply showcasing films the Dublin Smartphone Film Festival offer's training for schools using mobile phones has the primary device for storytelling. We provide the tools, equipment and skills needed for the students to become fully fledged filmmakers.
Up until this point expensive technology has always been a barrier to entry for young filmmakers. Expensive equipment can hinder creativity in schools has many schools don't have the resources to kit out students to give them a full insight into the filmmaking process. This means that filmmaking as a career choice for a lot of students might not be discovered until third level education.
To remedy this the Dublin Smartphone Film Festival offers the following solution.
Provide a step by step breakdown of the filmmaking process
Utilize a range of film facilitator's to cover all aspects of film
Hands on practical classes with professional equipment
Class structure that mirrors a the professional filmmaking process
