The Future Creative Content now cohort enter Week 4 of the course, which is all about developing their project ideas.
They will continue their Audition and Premier workshops with Rosie and Phill and Part 4 of Naana and Axel’s storytelling workshops.
Abraham Asefaw returns to host some quick-fire feedback sessions with each group and Epic Games are also back to host a Virtual Production workshop.
On Monday the cohort was joined by award winning entrepreneur and diversity consultant Sonya Barlow for a workshop on negational skills. Sonya really inspired the group as she shared her honest thoughts and useful tactics, “Negotiating is not a fight, it’s a charming exercise, where I go back and get my facts and figures to use”
“Absolutely loved this talk, definitely offered a new perspective on negotiating, being an entrepreneur and finding and backing your own value.”
“Honestly the realness is refreshing YES SONYA”
“Green screen your services are no longer required”- Sally-Anne Houghton from Epic Games hosted a talk on the ins and outs of virtual production , she spoke about how Epic crafts live action footage and computer graphics in real-time across multiple locations.
During Naana’s fourth Storytelling session she began by asking what people have learn about strategy so far. Alisha said
“I learnt that I’m in love with strategy and there is nothing that can compare to that breakthrough moment looool” and Tarnjeet added “Yeah I think we (Group Three) were able to refine our ideas and structure because of what you taught us with strategy and the questions from the template!”
The fourth instalment of Axel’s incredible Storytelling through Sound saw the group sharing some more of their work and brought up some interesting thoughts; Tarnjeet,
“I feel like audio related projects should always be made from feeling and what you as a sound designer/producer wants to hear rather than what you think other people want to hear”
Coming up next week...
Next week the cohort enter their penultimate week of the course and will be finalising their projects this week.
Part 5 of Naana & Axel’s workshops will focus on Execution, Selling your work and continued storytelling through sound.
There will be workshops focusing on Pitching from Jayshree Viswanathan and Will Worsdell, a livestreaming masterclass from Driift , a talk from Abadesi Osunsade on Networking and Relationship Building and the group will also be joined by Jon Eastman from Barcroft Media who will be speaking about Developing, Casting & Shooting Short-form docs with True Stories.
