Advanced FILMMAKERS
Ages 16-18
A 14 DAY INTENSIVE PROGRAM - July 23 - August 5, 2022
 

This highly creative course for students who have already completed Intermediate or other comparable filmmaking explorations, will provide basic professional skills and “on set” experience. Students spend a writing workshop weekend creating an original story and preparing to pitch it to their peers. They will work together to develop, cast, location scout, prepare and breakdown the script. Each student will play a key role as either the Director, Producer, Soundperson, Cinematographer, Production Designer, Screenwriter, Gaffer (lighting), Script Supervisor, Props, Costumes, Locations Manager, Music Supervisor or Editor of the film.

 

They will also learn how to use professional grade audio, lights, and camera gear. Working with industry professionals while shooting on location, their gear will include using a top-of-the-line camera 6k or higher, prime lenses, additional gear motion gear and editing on-site using DaVinci Resolve. They will learn some of the nuances of sound editing, video effects, and color grading as well as music composition for film and music supervision.

 

Working as a team on one film, under the continued one-on-one supervision of professional filmmakers and industry guest instructors, these young emerging artists will create a more complex and lengthier short film for entry into student film festivals. All potential candidates must be self-motivated team players who want to hone their skills and pursue their passion for filmmaking. All potential candidates will be required to attend a short interview session or ZOOM and must be self-motivated team players possessed with a passion for filmmaking who want to sharpen and explore their skills with an eye towards this industry in the future. Their film will be the grand finale presentation of the student film festival on the last night
