PRACTICAL FILMMAKING STUDIES
FILMMAKING THROUGH THE PHILOSOPHY OF "LEARNING BY DOING"
The director is one of the most important figures on set. Able to supervise all the phases of the project, they must be able to convey his vision into a film made by many skilled workers. To succeed in doing this, the director must have an excellent knowledge of the technical and expressive aspects.
Our goal is to help the participants to understand the essentials of filmmaking from the initial idea to shooting on location.
This program is a basic course concerning American filmmaking techniques in order to obtain theoretical and practical basics. We will walk through a creative path intended for beginners and for those who are interested in movies and filmmaking language.
There will be meetings dedicated to several subjects such as screenwriting, directing, cinematography, editing and sound. The final objective of this program is to shoot a short collective short film together.
In addition to the theoretical and practical lessons of the course is offered:
free participation to the basic script-writing course "Writing through images"
free participation to the "How to watch a movie" course
auditing participation to the "Acting for film" program, in order to become familiar with the figure of the actor
At the end of the course there will be a private screening of the collective short movie in the movie theater. On that occasion, a certificate of program attendance will be issued to all the participants.
The short film will be sent to various festivals.
