Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

KEEN cin­e­matog­ra­phers in the Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity have an op­por­tu­nity to take ad­van­tage of free ABC Open work­shops be­ing held at the Cannonvale and Proser­pine li­braries over the next cou­ple of weeks.

Whit­sun­day mayor Jennifer Whit­ney said ABC Open pro­ducer, Dan Bat­t­ley, would host the work­shops to as­sist par­tic­i­pants with in­ter­view­ing and video skills, such as set­ting up cam­eras, fram­ing a sub­ject, ask­ing ques­tions and edit­ing videos.

“This is a great chance for people who want to par­tic­i­pate in ABC Open’s Life’s Big Ques­tions Video Chal­lenge Project to gain the es­sen­tial video and in­ter­view­ing skills needed to com­pile a video,” she said.

“The project is also an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for budding film pro­duc­ers or jour­nal­ists to share their videos with ABC au­di­ences across Aus­tralia.”

An in­tro­duc­tory work­shop (Part A), will be held at the Proser­pine Li­brary next Mon­day, March 17 and Beach Li­brary on Tues­day March 18, from 9.30am-12.30pm and 1-4pm re­spec­tively. Book­ings close to­mor­row (Fri­day, March 14).

A fol­low-up (Part B) work­shop will be held at the Proser­pine Li­brary on Mon­day, March 31 and Beach Li­brary on Tues­day, April 1, at the same times. Book­ings for these work­shops close on Fri­day, March 28.

Work­shops will re­quire min­i­mum book­ings of two people to go ahead and al­low for a max­i­mum of eight people per ses­sion.

Par­tic­i­pants are asked to pro­vide their own equip­ment and in­ter­net ac­cess if pos­si­ble.
