We are very pleased to announce a special training workshop that Duckrabbit will be running this November in conjunction with FORMAT & QUAD. Particularly exciting news is that the films that our trainees make during this workshop will be publicly exhibited at FORMAT in 2013, the biggest and most ambitious edition of the festival yet.
So if you’re a photographer, journalist, audio producer, communications specialist or storyteller looking to learn the art of photofilm production AND you want to be exhibited at an international photo festival then this is the one for you.
The workshop will be running in the town of Belper just 8 miles north of Derby from 26 to the 30 November. Belper is a beautiful market town, part of the Derwent Valley World Heritage area and the home to a thriving artistic community. We’ll be basing ourselves in one of Belper’s most historic buildings to ensure that the spirit of the place seeps into the work we do.
Over the course of four days you’ll be learning the art of photofilm making. Taking participants right through the production workflow, from identifying suitable stories, planning the shoot, gathering broadcast quality audio and photography through to post-production and completion of the project. Duckrabbit training is all about practical learning and in the four days all participants will produce their own two to three minute photofilm as part of a small production team.
Each group will work on a story researched by FORMAT relating to the festival’s theme of Factory and Mass Production. And each of the films that participants produce will be exhibited in the 6th edition of FORMAT International Photography Festival from 8 March to 7 April 2013. FORMAT is one of the UKs leading photography biennales focused on the best of what photography is and can be, through exhibitions, events, commissions, portfolio reviews, workshops, international meeting place and more.
