WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE MOVIES?

Limited space for 3 women
Free (travel and meal expenses will be paid)

We are making a series of DIY videos inspired by and made with the women of St Helens. The films will be made by women for women, and will cover a range of household DIY tasks from painting and decorating to putting up shelves.
There is an opportunity for three women to join the professional film crew on set.
You'll get practical, hands on experience of working with a crew, 1:1 mentoring from different crew members (director, producer, camera/sound operator) and discover the various career options that are available in the industry. It's also great experience for your CV, teaching you some transferable skills that can be applied to many other jobs beyond film & TV. Film sets are exciting, dynamic places to work, so above all this will be a fun and vibrant project to get involved in.
By taking part you will learn about following roles:
To take part you would need to be able to commit to joining the project 9am – 5pm from 6th – 9th and 19th – 21rd March so you can participate in every aspect of the project.

The Digital Tool Library & Film School are being developed with and for women by LUCA, producer Charmian Griffin and idle women.
The library will consist of 14 DIY films written, produced by and presented by women that demonstrate how to do a range of practical tasks. The how-to style videos will cover a variety of skills from hanging a shelf and bricklaying, to changing a lightbulb. These films will provide an alternative to the majority male-led DIY tutorials available online.
The DIGITAL TOOL LIBRARY & FILM SCHOOL is part of Helen - a once in a generation series of art projects and programmes of work created by partners Heart of Glass, idle women, ANU Productions and the women of St Helens.
