Cork Festival Seminars and Conferences
05 Oct 2000 :
The festival this year has arranged an exciting line up of seminars and Masterclasses aimed primarily at young filmmakers with the intention of assisting them in their film making careers. These are presented in partnership with Cork Film Centre.

In addition, with the support of Screen Training Ireland, the festival presents two training sessions:

Angry Kid: A Case Study
This case study will examine the original conception, the realisation of and the successful marketing of Aardman animation’s highly successful 'Angry Kid' shorts. Attendance is by application to Screen Training Ireland and is aimed at animators and animation companies.

Stepping-Stones
The ambition of many if not most short filmmakers is to move to making a feature film and many of the alumni of the Cork Film Festival have gone on to make successful features. This two-day session is intended to serve as a kind of stepping-stone in the transition from the short to the long form, and will be presented by experienced directors and producers.

Stepping-Stones is aimed at directors and producers who have made one or two shorts and wish to proceed to feature filmmaking. Attendance is by application to Screen Training Ireland.

‘Final Cut Pro’ Demonstration
Saturday 21st October, 11.00am, The Lecture Gallery, Crawford Municipal Art Gallery
Will Harris presents a demonstration on Apple Computers’ low-cost, high performance editing system.

"Basically, I now have the luxury of doing all my post-production at home, and save a fortune". Will Harris started working life on the radio in Cork at 13. By 22 he was studying TV & film production. It was a dislike of getting wet while shooting which drove him indoors to the editing suite. Spending six years on AVIDS, cutting mostly TV series and documentary, with the occasional film and drama, in the last 18 months he has moved into directing. Following the success of 'Decade of Dance', Ireland's first documentary on Club culture, Will is currently in post-production with 'You've Got Big Dreams, Baby', a film combining different genres, music video, documentary and video diary.
