Smart phone Movie Making Workshop

Hands on training in how to develop and produce low-cost short films that can be used to promote arts and cultural heritage within Tasmania is on offer now.  Here are some more reasons to join us.

There are many pros to using a smartphone to shoot an audio visual project. Smartphones can be:
  • compact, light and so portable-easy to carry
  • clever and so can provide a decent image quality
  • loaded with apps to give you more control over quality
  • added to with accessories such as lenses and camera stabilizers
  • handy-you always have it with you or somewhere close by
You can make a movie about a host of things. 

Your collection

Carolyn Fraser, Exhibitions Curator, Community Programs, State Library Victoria talks about a box of Mercurosal which was a mercury salt that was used in the treatment of syphilis.

Someone who has unique information about your collection

Promotion for your town

Part of the campaign to promote the town of Ballarat beyond old and gold. This is called Made of Ballarat: about makers David & Yuge Bromley

Promotion for your museum

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) entry for the Museum Dance Off in 2018-the last of the dance offs

The upcoming workshop will put the skills and experience into your hands to start making your own movies. Rural and regional museum staff and volunteers will be able to script, shoot, edit and upload a short promotional film using technology you already own--your smartphones. With these smarts you can promote yourselves and your treasures.  Being able to make short films can document and promote your museum but also supports you in any collaborations with local tourist operators and groups.  It really isn't that difficult and it is fun.
