Welcome to Luana's Workshop!!!
THE ART & CRAFT OF CINEMATIC STORYTELLING (ACCS) is an in-person and online storytelling workshop that explores the five stages of the filmmaking process: a journey of self-discovery through the Art & Craft of "Smart-Filmmaking". Aimed at children and young people, the ACCS workshop is designed, built and run by award-winning director Luana Di Pasquale to unlock participants' unique voices and visions through Art & Craft activities, film and sound and acting for the screen exercises. As the participants question themselves and the conditions of our time through visual storytelling, the ACCS workshop equips them with the essential knowledge, skills and guidance to develop their ideas into coherent stories - with a beginning, a middle and an end - but also to develop the "look and feel" of their stories, all while writing, filming and editing their stories, using a smartphone or an iPad. At the end of the ACCS workshop, the participants exhibit the short video stories they've made solo or as part of a group to their peers, families and community friends!!!
"The Art & Craft of Cinematic Storytelling workshop is the result of my 9 years of creative educational work in Storytelling/Filmmaking in schools, colleges, academies, art organisations, galleries/museums and community centres. Indeed creativity is the universal force that brought us to life on planet Earth: the greatest force behind self-discovery, building resilience and emotional well-being in each of us. I love teaching storytelling/filmmaking to children and young people and guiding them through their journey of self-discovery while nurturing their creativity. I love co-producing their personal stories through the Art & Craft of Cinematic Storytelling and witnessing the impact this workshop has on their self-confidence and the development of their critical thinking. I have a great passion for the young ones's and the less young' s stories and anything to do with creativity. This workshop is possible thanks to the Lottery-funded grant by the Arts Council." - www.luanadipasquale.com
