Image for Behind the Scenes

For those of you who wish to see behind the lens, who want to understand the techniques and talents that create the images we see on the big screen, Behind the Scenes is here to pull back the curtain and reveal the biggest secrets of the filmmaking world. The award-winning composer Matt Dunkley joins us for a round of Anatomy of a Soundtrack, and Creative Media Skills return with an illuminating talk presented by make-up alumni Danny Marie Elias. Stop motion is making huge waves in the industry, and to celebrate we’re hosting Stop Motion - Life Between Frames with a collection of animators from GFF18 Opening Gala Isle of Dogs. Tony Doogan joins us for Outlaw King - Settling The Score, to discuss the creative process of writing and performing the immersive score. NFTS Scotland partner up with GFF again, bringing costume director Trisha Biggar and editor Colin Monie to discuss their crafts. All of these events are free - expand your creative palette and go Behind the Scenes!
