Bringing together international writers, directors and producers with visual technologies experts

The Cross Channel Film Lab new training programme, CCFL Training, is designed to bring together predominantly European writers, directors and producers with visual technologies experts and script consultants to explore how storytelling can be impacted by the use of these technologies, affecting the development and production of low to medium budget feature films.

Creative Europe, Creative England and Falmouth University, along with Brittany-based Le Groupe Ouest, are partners in CCFL Training.

16 feature film projects, split evenly between VFX and Stereo 3D, will be developed over six months, bookended by the Falmouth workshop and a second residential workshop at Le Groupe Ouest’s headquarters in Brittany in November, with virtual consultancy sessions with story and technical consultants in between. CCFL Training combines traditional learning (case studies, seminars) with hands-on training, group and individual project mentoring, and peer learning, and online sessions that provide an opportunity to revisit past workshop sessions. A parallel online programme incorporating these sessions will be announced in June, with a call for a further 24 participants.
