Are you passionate about filmmaking? Looking to express your individual creative voice? Join VCA's Teenflix Winter School, our filmmaking course for teenagers.

Located in the arts precinct at Southbank (Melbourne), this practical three-day filmmaking short course for teenagers aged 13 to 18, provides participants with an intensive introduction to the film and television industry.

The filmmaking short course will include:

  • Introduction to screenwriting
  • Visual storytelling through camera placement, framing and lighting
  • What makes a great short film?
  • The Cinematographer & Camera Department

Best of all, students will complete one mockumentary style exercise and two short films, all in just 3 days!  

The teaching team is led by experienced industry professional, Andrew Blogg, who has been involved in film and video production since completing the Foundations Program at the Victorian College of the Arts, School of Film & Television in 2002 (the course he now convenes). Since completing his studies, Andrew has worked on numerous film and television productions, educational programs, music videos and promotional videos. In 2004, his film 'Chay', the story of Cambodian brothers coping with grief, was shown at the prestigious New York Short Film Festival. In 2010, Andrew partnered with colleague, Tim Purdie, and embarked on their first feature documentary entitled Camp 32 which has so far screened at the Cambodian International Film festival (2015) and at the Cambodia Town Film Festival (2016) in Long Beach California.

Led by experienced film practitioners, participants will undertake a series of intensive, hands-on filmmaking workshops, have the opportunity for shooting time in our state of the art film studios and try a variety of film roles including Writer, Director, 2nd Assistant Director, Actor, Camera Operator, Gaffer, Boomswinger and Grip.

If you are looking to take your filmmaking skills to the next level, then VCA Teenflix Winter School is for you!
