During the three workshop weekends after returning from Cuba you will be taught professional digital editing skills and put together your final film. We will be using the facilities of our learning centre; every student will have personal use of a computer; although during final editing we will be working in production groups: each group producing a film approximately 15 minutes in length. It is strongly advised that all participants are reasonably familiar with using computers with windows-based operating systems (i.e. Microsoft windows or Mac OS).
