CHOCOLATE FILMS POP-UP MEDIA STUDIO WORKSHOP

May 11 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0

In collaboration with Wandsworth Council and Battersea Power Station, we will be giving you an experience of a lifetime to create your own animation film to celebrate Wandsworth Arts Fringe 10th anniversary in style!

You will be working with professional filmmakers, using professional filmmaking equipment in the cool Heritage and Learning Hub at Battersea Power Station. You do not need to be tech savvy or have previous experience in animation filmmaking, simply show up and the filmmakers will take you through the whole process. This workshop is for everyone so you can bring your parents, your children, your siblings and your friends to this incredible experience that you seriously do not want to miss!

But that is not all! In celebration of Wandsworth’s creative communities, we are inviting aspiring young filmmakers 7 – 25 years to send us short films that will be screened during the event.

The requirements are the following:

  • You do not need to be a  filmmaker or an experienced filmmaker, as long as your story is visually told.
