Video Workshop for Aspirant Filmmakers

As part of the 40th Durban International Film Festival, the University of KwaZulu Natal’s Centre for Creative Arts invites community organisations to apply for a free workshop on Basic Video Production which will take place from the 23 – 27 July 2019 at the KZNSA Gallery.

The workshop is open to entry-level applicants, preferably those who have not been working in the industry but have a strong desire to pursue video production as a career option. The course will involve practical skills on video camera operation, composition, scripting and video editing. Successful participants will be awarded a certificate of attendance at the completion of the workshop.
