CAMP: MEDIA ARTS ACADEMY FOR TEENS #8
If you’re thinking about applying to film school or want to experience the excitement (and challenges) of creating an entire film from scratch and experiencing a real film shoot, you don’t have to go to New York or Los Angeles. Now in its 12th year, the MEDIA ARTS ACADEMY FOR TEENS is the School of Film's premier opportunity to learn with award-winning film professionals, work in a small group, and use professional level digital video equipment and Apple Final Cut Pro software. Bring several script ideas to the first day. You'll work as a group to determine producability, what attributes make a story great, and to select one concept to develop into a screenplay. You will then be involved in all aspects of production, including planning, casting, directing, working with actors, shooting, lighting, sound recording, and editing to a polished level. Come prepared to work hard and learn an amazing amount! Expect at least one long shooting day during the class. The week will culminate in a screening for family and friends in the Film Center's state-of-the-art Whitsell Auditorium. Tuition includes catered lunches. No previous experience is required. Completed films will be uploaded to a special class online video album.
Enrollment is limited to 14.
