Documentary workshop with 12 students between 14 and 18 year old from Anykščių Jono Biliūno gymnasium.

During the workshop students of Anykščių Jono Biliūno gymnasium explored the relation between emotions of protagonists and weather conditions in cinema. During the first sessions they watched film excerpts and analysed them with a film educator, a filmmaker and their teacher. Also, they started developing their ideas. Afterwards, they had a seminar held by a cameraman who provided students with information about film language, introduced them to the variety of cinematic elements and different choices of a filmmaker. In the second part of the session students began to shoot their films. Most of the adolescents continued shooting and editing at home as their homework task. In the last session the students presented their works and reflected on them. The reception part was led by the filmmaker, who also commented on their final works and gave them advice.
