Behind The Scenes

The National Youth Film School

The National Youth Film School is a summer course that takes place in Kilkenny, Ireland each year. During the course, young people get a chance to work together to create short films in a professional environment.

The participants of the NYFS course were split into groups, and given a pre-selected script to produce. These scripts were also written by young people, and were selected through a screenwriting competition.

The various roles within these groups were assigned by the facilitators. Once these roles were established, each group had a table read with their actors and were given the freedom to plan ahead for the shoot days.

My role during this production was on camera, I had never been in this position previously. It gave me an opportunity to understand cinematography with a new appreciation. Not only does it require discipline (setting up new shots constantly, factoring in the environment) it also requires imagination and spontaneity.
