Taking place in Stornoway on 14 April, the event will give young people the chance to meet professional film-makers and acquire new skills and techniques using state-of-the-art equipment.
Following acting roles in Trainspotting and My Name Is Joe, Peter Mullan switched his focus to writing and directing, and has continued to excel in these areas. At the Film Nation:Shorts event, he will give an insight into his experiences of working on projects ranging from budget to blockbuster.
The following day, a second masterclass will feature production designer Mark Leese. He will reveal what it takes to transfer a story from being an idea to an actual onscreen creation. Further details on both masterclasses can be found at the Film Nation: Shorts website.
Film Nation:Shorts is a Cultural Olympiad project that invites 14 to 25-year olds to create short films which celebrate the values of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The competition showcases the creative talents of the next generation and gives them a chance to be right at the heart of the Games.
