LEARN THE CRAFT OF FILMMAKING
As the producer is the main engine of a film, students will learn the language and practice of filmmaking so that they can apply this knowledge to their own original films. They will discuss shooting plans for their film projects and screen their work with their instructor throughout the course.
Directing is approached as the art of visual storytelling. Students will find that directing the camera concerns more than just where to place the camera. Through hands-on demonstrations, the students will learn how camera movement, visual arrangement, and editing patterns not only depict the action but also express the underlying drama. Each student directs a series of films in crews of four. Students also rotate in these crews among the principal film crew positions. Crews are required to meet each week with the directing instructor to review scripts and shooting plans.
It’s the script that is the backbone of any film, and students will become comfortable writing original screenplays. Students learn the process of taking take a story from initial idea, through treatment and step outline, to a finished script for their final film with the help of our exceptional faculty. Story structure, theme, character, tension, and conflict will be explored as they are used in filmmaking.
HAND-ON DIGITAL CAMERA AND LIGHTING
Each group will produce and finish their own short movie in the camp. This camp features an immersive approach to filming, encouraging students to film from day one. Students will learn to edit their films with digital editing software – we will use iMovie on your computer
While the script provides the backbone of production and cameras capture the action, it is the editing process that gives all that footage actual structure. Students will learn to edit their films with digital editing software. Their instructor will cover both the technical aspects of the editing process, as well as the conventions and theory behind editing choices and styles.
Method of Delivery
As with all the programs, the focus is on learning by doing. Students rotate through the necessary crew positions of director, cinematographer, producer, and actor on location in and around the school’s campus.
Students use the foundation skills taught in course to create short, filmed scenes that will be celebrated at a screening on the conclusion of the second week. These essential skills will empower students to more easily explore their passion for filmmaking going forward.
