A few months ago, my team and I decided we were going to start training young filmmakers on the rudiments of camera, sound, lighting and editing.
None of us had any prior teaching experience so we had no clue how we were going to “impart this knowledge”, but we were super-excited about the idea, and we had acquired some experience over the years, so we dove head on into the project.
It was decided that my office would be converted into a lecture room, and while I was busy trying to wrap my head around the fact that I would be a squatter in my own office for four weeks, Kess and the rest of the guys came up with e-flyer designs for the course
After consulting from Opeyemi & John our design guys, flyers were quickly broadcast over Facebook, Twitter and BBM, and then we waited with bated breath. Nobody had ever heard of Free Spirit Academy, so we were not sure anyone would even bother to call and find out what the course was all about.
