We will cover areas such as: Filming sequences, Shot types, angles and sizes, Following action, Crossing the line, Interview techniques, Storytelling, Hand held versus tripod filming and the Importance of good sound.

Please bring something to film with i.e. ipads, phones or digital cameras. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience.


Islington Mill Art Academy (IMAA) offer free open public sessions every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the Month. 

IMAA is our free peer-led art school. It is open to anyone who wants to be an artist. Learning activities (workshops, artist talks and studio visits, group residencies and projects, crits and feedback sessions) are shared and led by the ideas and energy of current student-members. IMAA is not formally accredited; students choose to graduate when they feel ready to work more independently as artists.

Currently we meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays each month (with optional extra time for group projects), followed by a potluck dinner. We encourage anyone interested in joining to attend an upcoming session to discover if it is the right approach for you. Please get in touch for details:
