CLÀR / PLATFORM
Join An Lanntair’s youth production platform, Clàr for our next block of weekly sessions, from 25th August til 6th October. This season we’ll be honing our music and video production skills to create a collaborative visual album, culminating in a live showing and online release. We’ll develop our individual sonic palettes, and Ableton Live techniques while exploring ways of visualising music through film and animation. You don’t need any specialist knowledge or equipment to attend, come to as many workshops as you are able.
What we do:
Clàr / Platform is a new multimedia project for creative young people who are interested in getting into film, streaming, content creation, production skills and organising events. It’s a group that meets on a weekly basis to decide on the kind of work we are going to focus on, the outcomes we will create and the kinds of skills we need to learn to get there. We are led by our participants and tailor the focus of our activities to suit the interests and abilities of the people who attend.
What kind of things will we explore?
– Recording live gigs and exhibitions then interviewing the artists and musicians involved.
– Curating and producing live events in An Lanntair
– Script development, pre-production and planning sessions
– Masterclasses and shadowing from camera operators, sound engineers and lighting designers
– Using creative software such as Ableton, Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Touchdesigner, Fusion 360
– Dedicated electronic music tuition from practising musicians and DJs
– Experimenting with platforms like Arduino and Teensy
Who can take part?:
Anyone aged 14 – 25 in Lewis and Harris with an interest in our project is encouraged to join. We don’t require any previous experience.
