DESCRIPTION

Sunday 5th August 10am-5pm Join the Portsmouth DarkFest team for a day of fun viral video production activities. Collaborate with writers, artists, filmmakers, and performers, learn what makes a good viral video, shoot and perform in your own viral video. The aim of the day is to produce a series of short viral videos promoting this year’s Portsmouth DarkFest in advance of this year’s festival. The day will start with a short talk on the qualities of a good viral video, followed by the workshopping of creative ideas. We will then split into production teams to write, rehearse and shoot your videos. At the end of the day the team will take your videos away, edit them, brand them and launch the festival with them in October/November 2018. Portsmouth DarkFest is a cultural festival that celebrates the supernatural, the weird, and urban noir. Inspired by the Supernatural Cities project at the University of Portsmouth, and working in close collaboration with Portsmouth Writers’ Hub and artists from the local community, the first festival ran in venues across Portsmouth and Southsea between late October and late November 2016.  Suitable for: writers, artists, filmmakers, costumiers, makers, performers, actors, or anyone who wants to have some fun and produce some video. What do you need to bring with you: nothing but your own creativity is needed but you can bring video cameras, costumes, make-up, props, anything you think might be useful?
