Introduction to Filmmaking Summer School (for ages 11-14)
If you want to start learning how to make your own films, this course will show you to the basics
If you want to start learning how to make your own films, this summer school will introduce you to the basics including how to shoot the best frame, work from a storyboard, write the strongest characters and teach you how to edit your finished film.
During the end of course project students will rotate through all the roles involved in the filmmaking process, allowing them first-hand experience of each of the roles and the responsibilities that these roles have. In previous years students have found a new passion for roles from 1st Assistant Director, to Script Supervisor to Boom operator.
The final production will involve re-shooting a classic or iconic scene from the world of film, chosen by the group. Previous years have re-shot the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ scene from Wayne’s World and the ‘Paris city folding’ scene from Inception.
This course is open to those who have shot various experimental films at home on their phones, to those who attend film clubs, to those who have never picked up a camera before. There is also an opportunity for those who are interested in acting to perform in the final projects.
