Film Fundamentals for Teens
July 7 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$160
Learn how to make your own film from local industry professionals!
FilmPEI Teen Film Fundamentals delves into the process of filmmaking and all the elements that are part of making a project from beginning to end.
Students will be introduced to camera equipment, lighting and sound equipment, complete with a hands-on tutorial.
In addition to the technical elements, we will get into story telling, story structure, authenticity and diversity. How do we tell a story?
The class also looks at production management, script breakdown, locations and finding folks to work with, i.e. all the paperwork that goes with making a movie.
Basics in directing, storyboarding, focusing, framing and point of view will be also be covered as students prepare to make their own short towards the end of the course.
Students will create their own short film together and then shoot and edit their own films.
Anyone who attends this Film Fundamentals summer program can expect to have a well rounded view of what goes into making a short film and also have a new group of friends to make those films with!
