Thank you from doMore

I'd like to thank you for being involved in the doMore.com.au community and the team and I hope that you've received value from being a part of it.

doMore was our original passion project born out of the desire to help connect people wanting to learn something new with experts that could teach them over 10 years ago.

Over the years we have helped almost 70,000 learners connect with one of over 1,500 courses and providers, across the country. For that, we're very proud and grateful for your contribution.

doMore.com.au also served to teach us about how to help measure and improve business performance and inspired the launch and growth of two other companies as a result, one of which we've decided to dedicate our resources and energy to making great.

We'll be switching the site off on Tuesday 31st of July. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us directly on [email protected].

Thanks again and good luck with your teaching endeavours in the future.

Warm regards,

The doMore team.

Low Budget/No Budget Filmmaking: New course, Feb 15 and 16, 2014

Saturday Feb 15 to Sunday Feb 16: You’ve written your great film script, you have an idea for a doco and want to get started on it, your friends need a music clip, you want to make an award-winning short for a film festival such as Tropfest, or someone needs a corporate video for their business website? This weekend is for low budget filmmakers, media teachers and students wanting to improve production values in their films and is aimed at “one man band” or small crews with little or no budget. You’ll learn how to move your camera using a wally dolly, steadicams such as the Merlin and the new Boombandit (which will be available to buy at the course for $295). Learn how to light expertly using a basic LED kit, improve sound by using an external audio recorder like the Zoom H4n. Using iPhones, GoPro’s and DSLR’s this hands-on, practical course will also introduce you to inexpensive, professional Final Cut Pro X editing. There will be a Canon 5D Mark III available to shoot with at the course, but participants are encouraged to bring and use their own iPhones, Android (phone) cameras or DSLR’s (and tripod if you have one) to experiment with the equipment demonstrated at the course. Participants can then take footage shot to edit in their own time. You will also get the latest information on high quality, low budget cameras, LED lights and small Steadicams. Most of the (budget) equipment we use will be available for hire or sale through Lemac if people want to “kit up” or improve their existing filmmaking tools. By the end of the weekend participants should be able to go out and shoot their own stories and make much better films with higher production values. Conducted by Con Filippidis Cinematographer (25th Reich, Hostage to Fate, Desire) and Marcus McLeod (GRIP and Boombandit Inventor). Participants are advised to book early to secure a place in this new and innovative course and accommodation is available on campus.

Writing for Film and Television: 2 weekends Feb 1 and 2 then Feb 8 and 9, 2014

Writing Short Films 1: Writing Short Films 1: Short films, often referred to as the “apprenticeship” towards feature films, are in fact an art form in themselves - one which is becoming increasingly popular at film festivals and online. But they require strong, well-structured scripts to capture an audience and tell a story in a limited amount of time. This course is designed to study the basic screenwriting skills applicable to writing a short film. Students will watch, analyse and discuss a selection of fabulous short films. Conducted by Chris Corbett (Scriptwriter Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, The Secret Life of Us, The Doctor Blake Mysteries, Stingers, All Saints. Chris has written a number of short films including Fences and The Applicant - both of which were Tropfest finalists. He also wrote the web series Tinytown). Saturday 1 Feb Writing Short Films 2:Participants will take what was learnt in Writing Short Films 1 and take it further by participating in practical screenwriting exercises. Learn how to create memorable characters, identify what is driving those characters, find the heart of the story and maximise the dramatic elements to make the story compelling. Conducted by Chris Corbett (Scriptwriter Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, The Secret Life of Us, The Doctor Blake Mysteries, Stingers, All Saints. Chris has written a number of short films including Fences and The Applicant - both of which were Tropfest finalists. He also wrote the web series Tinytown). Sunday 2 Feb Adaptation for the Screen: Adapting novels, plays and fact for the screen. Film is a visual medium which cannot replicate the written word, but many film-makers successfully adapt fiction, stage plays and "true stories" for the screen. Which stories work for film and television? How do you choose what to include and what to leave out? How do you combine the art of story-telling with the art of moving pictures? We will analyse examples from screenplays adapted from other works. We will also work together over the day on a number of practical exercises that will demonstrate the process of adaptation for the screen. Conducted by Chris Corbett (Scriptwriter The Secret Life of Us, The Doctor Blake Mysteries, Stingers, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries). Saturday 8 Feb Writing for Television: Television is the medium with the broadest and most immediate reach into the hearts and minds of the nation and nowadays the small screen is where great screenwriting is flourishing and at its most innovative. This course will give you an insight into how television writing works from a writer and story editor’s point of view. You'll learn how a series is created and approved by a Network, how the series Bible is conceived, and subsequent episodes plotted, written and rewritten. Special attention will be given to story structure, character development and interweaving story strands; identifying genres, adding suspense, conflict and how to adhere to format, production, casting and budget demands. Conducted by Jutta Goetze (Scriptwriter/Editor Janus, Phoenix II, Flying Doctors, Halifax f.p., Simone de Beauvoir's Babies, Always Greener, Good Guys, Bad Guys, Series Creator/Writer Bed of Roses).
