Iconic Steps has done many projects and courses in its previous years.
Below are a few things we have done in the past:
On The Move
On the Move was a course that saw Iconic Steps partnering with Rambert, London’s oldest dance company, to bring budding young filmmakers a rare and fantastic opportunity. The young filmmakers went behind the scenes with Rambert’s leading dancers for their performances at Sadler’s Wells, Garsington Opera, Norwich Theatre Royal and Theatre Royal Brighton. The final shorts were screened exclusively at the BFI in April 2017.
Iconic Steps partnered with BFI Future Film to give students a unique opportunity to make a short film shot in a set specially designed by students at the Wimbledon College of Arts. The set was based on a 1960’s African-Caribbean family Lounge and was part of the BFI’s summer season of films and events “London on Film”. The week started by visiting the Southbank Centre’s fantastic exhibition “Adopting Britain”, watched films, looked at archive materials and explored the lives of African-Caribbean immigrants in the 1960’s before devising and writing a short film script that was based in the set.
A Moving Image
Especially for those in Southwark and those who want to have their voice heard when it comes to the changes that are happening in their area, this course was made for them. Alongside a production crew, they learned the ropes working on a fiction feature film from the people who knew best. They were then able to have the opportunity to put what they had learned to action by creating their own documentary.
