Digital Festival Online Showcase


About the Event

Level 5 Acting & Performance students worked remotely to write, direct, perform, and edit 3-minute creative digital responses that questioned what it means to them to ‘break free’. BREAK 3 is a celebration of their creativity, ingenuity and resourcefulness. All of the works have been shot on a smartphone device using lo-fi Do-it-Yourself filmmaking techniques. The student responses are diverse and some of them are really surprising. All BREAK 3 films are to be made freely available as part of this special one-off screening event that will begin at 12pm. The programme and access details will be published here closer to the time. 

Created by Level 5 Acting & Performance Students 

Warnings: Some of the films contain strong language and adult themes and are not suitable for viewers under the age of 18.

About the DIY Filmmaking Module

This module introduced students to a type of filmmaking that requires a much lower budget, resource, and technical skill than in conventional and mainstream films, but an equal or even higher amount of creative skill, ingenuity, and conceptual scope.  DIY Filmmaking is unashamedly low-fi, Guerrilla, adventurous, and often playful. This is a process of filmmaking that revels in the serendipity of everyday life! The students explored the potential of technology that is readily available to them, such as their smart phones. They were encouraged to think like contemporary filmmakers and artists who are pushing the boundaries of what is possible with this kind of technology. The module aimed to encourage an awareness of the possibilities when working with micro-budgets and asked the students to focus upon what is at the crux of good filmmaking (regardless of money): the concept, story, and the aesthetic approach. The module also aimed to encourage students who have an interest in moving image and filmmaking, to develop their ideas and approaches and to begin thinking about establishing their own practice as a filmmaker.
