BFI Film Academy at the Barbican
Since October last year Eelyn has been running the BFI Film Academy at the Barbican Centre, training aspiring 16-19 year old filmmakers. The course has attracted some highly motivated and talented young people from across London.
Eelyn has worked closely with the Creative Learning department at the Barbican to design an exciting, fast track introduction to the film production process. We have been looking at British films including Kes and The Third Man to inspire ideas for 90 second micro shorts. The four films written and produced by the students will be screened at the Barbican in March and submitted to film festivals internationally.
Eelyn has been working alongside her long-term collaborators, cinematographer Winstan Whitter and editor Francis Morgan-Giles to deliver the programme.
