FilmAfrica has had a fairly good response to our invitation to the FilmAfrica workshops in all departments – except Production Design. This particular department is in danger of being cancelled unless we get more applications…. and we know training is needed and wanted out there for those of you who work in art department.
The tutor leading this 2 week workshop worked on The International (Clive Owen/Naomi Watts) and Perfume (Dustin Hoffman). This workshop could make the difference for you to move from being stand by props person or wardrobe assistant to a fully fledged Production Designer. The training you will get in two weeks would be worth months even years on set.
Producers & Directors – if you are find well trained art department / production designers in short supply – please prompt those you know with talent and experience in art department to apply for the workshop. This is of benefit to the whole industry here.
This is open to folks from all over and for those outside Nairobi, transport / accommodation will be provided.
Still taking applications for all seven departments – which are
6. Production Design
Go to www.film-africa.org to apply. (Don’t forget the hyphen)
21st September to 1st October
We will pay travel and accom costs for those coming from outside NBO
