Abstract Phone Filmmaking Workshop - The Movie

Thanks to all the young people that took part in the workshop last night at Pie Factory Ramsgate and of course Louise Webb who ran a really fun session. Here's a short film of the editing section of the workshop that the children produced from a snippet of Louise's film footage of a bus journey. I'll hope you'll agree they are some very talented young people who mostly had never used Premiere Pro before and completed this in about 20 minutes.  Well done Evie, Stuart and Ruby.
