    About

    This summer experience is best suited for students with a strong interest in learning the art of filmmaking. Ideally, this student is looking to meet like minded youth to explore filmmaking, learn new media skills, and create a film together over the course of two weeks with guidance from two pro indie filmmakers & educators.

    Our hands-on Teen Summer Film Intensive will take students through the process of making a short film from script to screen. Students will be immersed into the world of filmmaking and learn extensively on topics such as: screenwriting, storyboarding, character development, camera movement, sound, lighting, and post-production editing. Each student will experience crew roles found traditionally on set such as: Gaffer (lighting), Boom Operator (sound), Editor, Cinematographer (camera), Producer, and Director.

    Further, we'll dive into the world of mood, tone, intent, aesthetic, set design, and art direction. Creating sets by hand, using light to evoke mood & tone, and capturing behind the scenes movie magic in a realm of digital photographs. Each step will be documented and at the end of the course, students will have completed a short film.
