Story to Screen

 A callout for applications to participate in the next Story to Screen Digital Storytelling Project will take place in July 2017



In 2016 North Sydney Council invited secondary school students Years 7-12 to join us for FREE filmmaking workshops with creative industry professionals. Workshops were held after school and during the September/October School Holidays and included workshop on Filmmaking, Movie Poster Design, Greenscreen Technology, Claymation, Film Quick Tricks, and Stopmotion Animation.


The final student projects were showcased at a final film screening event at the Independent Theatre in November. On show for one night only, the event presented the varied and creative work of over 90 local High School students. Also on exhibition for the duration of the screening event was a series of movie posters, imagined and designed by students in the Story to Screen Movie Poster Workshop. The final films are now featured and available to watch on Council’s YouTube channel.


We would like to thank all of the students who participated for their dazzling creativity as well as our talented collaborators Colourfest, DigiEd, Document Photography and the Wenona School.
