Smith has collaborated as associate producer and assistant director in professional films. He has also worked on broadcast documentaries as camera operator, sound engineer and assistant producer.

The proposed cinematographic production workshop unfolds according to a professional approach. The inspiration and the script ideas come directly from the students and this encourages their creativity. Participants are made aware of the different roles within a production and the technical aspects of handling equipment before being invited to carry out a series of filming exercises. Towards the end of the workshop, the resulting content is placed in an editing context, while young people watch their work on the screen. All of the cinematographic production steps are addressed and explained by the artist. The experience of writing, performing and filming will transform the written scenario into a visual language. Throughout the workshop, emphasis will be put on positive communication, thereby encouraging efficient cooperation for the production of the films
Other examples of activities
The type of production is determined by the school’s needs and the desired level of involvement of the participants. A shorter practical workshop lasting a couple of hours, will allow participants to understand the mechanics of filming scenes and the necessary steps to produce a film. The scripts can be short films or a variety of humorous sketches. The students will be asked to choose a performing role or a technical role. This film production initiation workshop can give rise to larger scale projects. The artist will accompany young people during all of the pre-production, filming and editing steps.
The workshop requires DVDs at a cost of $10 per group.
