A two-week intensive to shoot and edit a short film. Do you already have experience and want to be part of a filmmaking crew? This session is right for you. There are opportunities for actors, directors, cinematographers, production designers, sound designers, composers, and production assistants. Scripts will be selected by the teachers from those generated during our Writing the Short Film intensive. You will work in small production teams based on interest, each crew working with a mentor. Each film team will start with casting while determining the visual style of their film. The campus serves as the back lot and sound stage as we scout locations and develop each film's production design. Then we'll plan our camera work and shooting schedule. At the end of the first week, we will have a beautifully shot film and some initial editing. In the second week, you will go deeply into the process of post-production. A film can be shot and simply edited, but to make a film competitive in the festival world, one needs to refine the editing in many ways. We will explore different editing styles, do audio dubbing and corrections, create a soundscape with sound effects, select music or compose a score, add special effects, make interesting title sequences and credits, do color corrections and more. In past years, films produced in our program have been screened in film festivals and won national awards.***This class will not cover basic instruction and, therefore Summer Film: The Basics or equivalent is a prerequisite.
