Open City Documentary Festival

More than a circle of chairs: A collaborative video workshop

Event has passed
Festival Hub

This workshop will be facilitated by Ed Webb-Ingall, as part of his ongoing research into collective and collaborative video making, and filmmaker and artist Jasmine Johnson.

Over the course of an afternoon, together, we will experiment with different techniques and methods to record a variety of group formations. We will try out a number of approaches to collective representation, from one-on-one interviews to group discussions. Drawing on documentaries, community videos and artist films, we will explore what it means to document collective conversations.

This will be a practical workshop. Please come willing to be on camera and experiment behind the camera. No previous experience necessary. We will supply equipment and refreshments.
