Filmmaker Alrick Brown visits GC
Last Friday our Media and Drama students were treated to a full day workshop with Alrick Brown, an award winning filmmaker and Assistant Professor of Undergraduate Film and Television at NYU.
In the morning lecture Alrick discussed his inspiring personal story and his journey in filmmaking.
“Alrick’s motivating and uplifting discussion gave us an incentive to pursue our dreams and aspirations.” – Chelsey Ballard (Yr 12)
During the afternoon session Alrick worked with students in a practical workshop focusing on story development and image composition.
“Alrick Brown was incredibly inspiring and helped us look at television and film from a new perspective. I am so thankful for this opportunity that allowed us to grow not only as artist, but as storytellers.” – Hannah Donald (Yr 12)
Our media and drama students are looking forward to putting what they learnt into practice later in term when they team up to create short films for this year’s Cinema 6 film festival.
“Alrick Browns’ insights into film and storytelling had an exceptional impact on my goals and my journey towards filmmaking. My experience with Alrick has solidified my dream of pursuing film and media abroad.” – Joshua McLoughlin (Yr 12)
We would like to thank the US Embassy for their role in making this experience for our students possible. In particular, we would like to thank Mike for his work behind the scenes, and David for documenting the experience.
Here are some pics from the day.
