Two local dads have joined forces, creating opportunities for Townsville residents to participate in the storytelling and content production industry through a series of free filmmaking workshops.
Facilitated by Michael Bromage and Bede Ashley of Duck Ruckus and held at DakTech’s new Maker Space, the three-part workshop will be held during October with participants collaborating ideas and learning how to create video that informs, entertains, and inspires.
With a grand vision to see Townsville-made content on the international streaming stage, Mick and Bede believe that success starts at the grassroots level and growing our local storytelling industry at a sustainable pace is necessary before exporting to global markets.
Whether you are a beginner, or experienced in content creation and digital storytelling, Mick and Bede’s goal for the workshops is to gather people together who love to make great content, to learn from each other through creative collaboration, while improving storytelling and content production knowledge and practical skills. Business owners, marketing and communication staff, local influencers and budding filmmakers are all encouraged to register.
“Every opportunity to learn from creative people builds your toolkit and your network of collaborators and helps you to execute your vision better,” says Mick.
Bede agrees, “We want to see great video content being made by workshop participants and are thrilled to have an opportunity to lead people through the process.”
The workshop series is designed to cater for 20 participants over three two-hour sessions to be held 5, 12, and 19 October. Visit our Business Events page for more information.
The series is part of the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), a partnership between the Queensland Government and the Townsville City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
