What is filmmaking today? In this workshop we look at how different media platforms affect
 the way we sense time, friendships, and an understanding of the world. From fake news to influencers, where can we go from here? In this workshop, participants read and discuss science fiction, and collaborate to research, write scripts, shoot, edit, and ‘release’ new short films.

In this 2 day course on 3D scanning and printing, students will learn how to scan a 3D image of themselves, use 3D modelling software to modify their scans and then print their creations using a 3D printer. The students will begin by 3D scanning a bust of themselves and learning how to view their scan in virtual space. They will next go through the process of modelling their busts into a full body representation of themselves and prepare their model for 3D printing. Throughout the process we will discuss how technology can be used for replication and self representation.
