Film Course: BEING ALIVE

Camden Arts Centre
April 2014

In this week long course I led two groups of young people (aged 5-7yrs and 8-11yrs) towards making a series of films exploring the idea of Being Alive (Tim Ingold style).

Taking on the role of anthropologist, the participants used filmic techniques to make playful documentaries and experimental shorts exploring the uniqueness of experience, embodiment and awakeness, the experiences of light, sound and feeling, the importance of storytelling in the integration of knowledge.

The resultant films were screened at a participant-led film festival at the end of the week.
