Yesterday marked the start of an epic, supernatural three days we’ve been looking forward to for a long, long time – the Aliens vs Zombies workshop.
In the morning, we were joined by over sixty young filmmakers across our centres in Balham, Chelsea, Hampstead and Highgate, each of whom are taking on the incredibly important task of deciding once and for all who is the best: aliens or zombies.
The filmmakers experimented with some of the basics of filmmaking, looking at different shot types and how to use them to create some particular effects, lining up shots and exploring the different crew roles. They’ve also been busy designing special effects make up looks for their creepy characters and starting to plot and storyboard their sci-fi masterpieces. All in all, it was a very busy day.
Today the young filmmakers are back, finalising their stories, completing their designs, crafting some spectacular special fx make up creations and shooting their films. They now just have two days to complete their battle films and find out the victors. We can’t wait to see how they do!
