Mobile Film-making and Photography Course

Part of Kader Attia: The Museum of Emotion

Learn from top film-makers how to make your own video work on your smartphone in a short course for ages 18 – 25 with Skin Deep and Blackcurrent.

Responding to Hayward Gallery exhibition Kader Attia: The Museum of Emotion and its themes of identity, borders, migration, race and housing, this course gives an introduction to making film and week-by-week hands-on guidance from experienced film-makers and industry leaders.

Over the course, you are guided to create a narrative, plan and develop your visual idea, collaborate with other participants, and learn how to use a phone to its full potential. At the end there is a Violet Nights event at Hayward Gallery, showcasing the work created.

Skin Deep is a creative powerhouse, redefining culture and amplifying voices of colour through discussions of race, politics and activism. Their online platform, biannual print publication and live events tell the stories others don’t. They have collaborated with creatives, musicians and writers, as well as Tate, ICA and Stuart Hall Foundation to produce and platform original and thought-provoking content which is fresh and accessible.

Since late 2017 Blackcurrent has partnered with a variety of collaborators, including Greenpeace, #Merky Books and Penguin Books. Specialised in creative direction and media production, Blackcurrent is a London-housed multidisciplinary creative studio disrupting the status quo with true diversity of thought.
