Let's Make a Movie Workshop with Gani Naylor (Sept 2021)

September 14, 2021

Let's Make a Movie with Gani Naylor

As both a filmmaker and a facilitator, Gani Naylor will be sharing processes, tips and tricks for using video and photo to engage participants, invite creativity, and tell stories about the things we care about. Through playful and experimental activities we will explore the possibilities for using film and photo for our personal creative expression and in our work with groups.

If possible please bring a camera or mobile phone separate to the device you are using to attend the workshop with. If you do not have a separate camera you can still take part in the workshop activities.
