Make a short introductory film relating to you. This can be done using your phone, a simple one take or scenes edited together depending on your skillset. Some ideas to get you started: A walk around your local area, using a documentary style, or perhaps something more abstract/cinematic, shadows dancing across the wall with VO narration. Maybe a piece to camera/interview about something you are interested in e.g climate change,
Objective: Create a short film that introduces yourself and your interest in film and filmmaking. This assignment aims to help you become comfortable with being in front of or behind the camera, and to express your enthusiasm for learning about the world of filmmaking.

Format: You can film yourself speaking directly to the camera or narrate over footage you've captured. The choice is yours. Duration: Your film should be between 1 to 3 minutes long. Keep it concise and engaging. Visuals: Feel free to use your phone or any camera you have access to. Use creative shots and angles to make your film visually interesting. Editing: If you have editing skills, you can edit your footage to add an extra layer of creativity. However, if you're new to editing, a simple, unedited video is perfectly fine.
