FASHION/FOCUS: Fashion Film Workshop

The British Council in partnership with the Ayala Museum will have a 3-day workshop on fashion film from 16 - 18 October 2012 at the Ayala Museum.

Fashion Film is a growing trend among fashion designers and an area of fashion communication in which the UK has a leading position.  It is an alternative medium for fashion designers who would like to tell the story of their collection apart from presenting their work in a catwalk show.      

The workshop will be facilitated by Belfast born Kathryn Ferguson who is a filmmaker and curator. She completed a Masters in Communication, Art & Design at The Royal College of Art in June 2011 where she specialised in experimental film. Previous to the RCA Kathryn had studied on the Fashion Communication BA at Central Saint Martins graduating in 2005. In between courses she made many short films for fashion designers and musicians including Richard Nicoll, Charlie Le Mindu, Katie Eary, Lady Gaga and Domino Records. These films have been featured on MTV, SHOWstudio, Dazed Digital, Bubblebyte, the BBC and in Vogue.

As well as her own filmmaking practise Kathryn also works as a Curator and Lecturer. She began curating the annual Birds Eye View Film Festival's 'Fashion Loves Film' strand at the Institute of Contemporary Arts & British Film Institute in 2008 where it continued until 2011.

Kathryn will be in Manila to facilitate the fashion film workshop as well as showcase a specially curated selection of 10 films from the UK.

This fashion film workshop will take students to the central aspects of the filmmaking process.  The workshop includes an illustrated introduction to film language using examples of fashion film; introductions to planning, shooting and editing video. Participants then plan, film and edit a simple sequence.

The workshop is open to people with a background in fashion design, filmmaking and make-up.
