On a recent Sunday morning ACS HQ was the venue for another workshop for ACS CineKids.

Since its inception the CineKids initiative has been gathering pace and this second workshop was well attended by eight junior ACS members. After screening a selection their own work the CineKids were guided through some practical film making exercises by Anna Howard ACS and Richard Wilmot.
The CineKids crew were well equipped to perform their various tasks thanks to the very generous donation of a Sony XD Camera, Miller Tripod and Dedo Light Kit by CineKids sponsor VIDEOCRAFT. All participants enjoyed themselves and look forward to the next workshop.

Thanks to Anna Howard ACS, Richard Wilmot, David Lewis ACS, David Wakeley ACS, Marianne Wakeley, Lizz Vernon and Jacqueline Cosgrove all of whom gave freely of their time and energies on a Sunday morning.
