About the Programme/Event

In this accompanying workshop to CANVAS/S: Moving Images, Amanda will be sharing about her process of creating video art and film, the inspiration and philosophy behind her practice and her process in creating a piece of video work through structuring and editing a poem of choice through visuals.

This is an intermediate workshop in video editing for visual prose and musicality. Participants will select from a series of poems provided to them, and by the end of the workshop, structure a visual interpretation of their chosen poem. Video material will be provided to them during the workshop. They will try their hand at editing experimental visual films to evoke an emotion or mood. The workshop targets the use of timing, colour, sequencing to create a non-linear story narrative. The end video is anywhere from 30 to 90 seconds.

 Things to note

Please bring along your laptop (that can run video editing software), mouse, laptop charger. Please have Adobe Premiere Pro downloaded in the laptop before the workshop. The trial version is available on their site.

Text, poems, video footage for editing, Adobe Premiere Pro presets and effects as well as stock music tracks will be provided.
