Welcome to Luana's Workshop!!!
THE ART & CRAFT OF CINEMATIC STORYTELLING (ACCS) is an in-person and online storytelling workshop, a journey of self-discovery through the art and craft of smart-filmmaking. Aimed for children, young people and the less young, ACCS is designed, built and run by the award-winning filmmaker Luana Di Pasquale to unlock participants' unique voices and visions through art & craft activities, creative writing while they explore the five stages of the filmmaking process.
As the participants question themselves and the conditions of our time through visual storytelling, ACCS provides to them the essential knowledge, skills and guidance as they develop ideas and the look and feel into a story which then they'll write, film and edit using a smartphone or an iPad.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have produced their short film story based on the subject/themes developed in the workshop while having the best time in their lives! Their works will be then exhibited among their peers, families and community friends!!!
ACCS workshop is the result of my educational work - my experience of teaching storytelling through the filmmaking process - over the last 9 years in schools, colleges, academies, art organisations, galleries/museums and community centres. Indeed, storytelling is the most powerful medium to record the conditions of our time and to express the unknown, the unspoken or the forgotten, a great tool for self-discovery, well-being and to build resilience. I enjoy working with children, young and the less young, nurturing their creativity, guiding them through their journey of self-discovery and co-producing their personal stories through the art and craft of the filmmaking process. This workshop is possible thanks to the Lottery-funded grant by the Arts Council.'- www.luanadipasquale.com
