This 4-class workshop is designed to teach up and coming Filmmakers ages 11-15 the basic steps to create a short film. Each student will direct, shoot, and edit a short 1-3 minute film that will be premiered on the big screen at the Little Reel Film Fest in January 2020.
The instructor will take teh class through the 3 major portions of film-making: Pre-Production, Production, and Post-Production both in theory and in practice. STudents will enjoy the hands-on, interactive learning style that will have them shooting footage on day one. The students will be using smartphones for both image capture and editing, rather than complicated professional equipment. The focus of this workshop is to learn the importance of film concept, visual storytelling, cinematorgraphy, editing, and music. By the end of the course the students will be able to tell better visual stories regardless of technology.
Each student will need an iphone/smartphone/ipad/ipod with the Splice App installed.
