The Newport Film School at the University Of South Wales were on hand at this year's Green Man Festival in Crickhowell to inspire festival goers at their makeshift production studio aptly named the 'Tent of Dreams'

At the ‘Tent of Dreams’, the film school were offering revellers the chance to make and star in their own creative music video, produce a festival themed documentary or open a world of possibilities using state of the art green screen experimentation. Using this technology, the participants were able to visit the moon and were even given the extraordinary opportunity to meet themselves at the festival.


Furthermore, there were Film lecturers and current students from the Film School on hand to assist with the filmmaking and editing, and also to answer any questions people had about studying film.

USW’s presence at the festival was a complete success with each of the 15 films made being screened at the cinema tent to an audience of 1000 people.

Christopher Morris, Professor of Documentary at Newport Film School at the University of South Wales said, “We had a wonderful time at Green Man making films with festival goers. At the film school we believe the best way to learn filmmaking is through a direct 'hands on’ approach and so at Green Man we ran highly practical film production workshops without creative restrictions. It was a fantastic opportunity to work alongside the next generation of potential filmmakers and demonstrate the endless possibilities that can be achieved through studying the medium of film at the University of South Wales.”
