Film Academy Outline
Please note, while we outline here some of the goals of the specific academy, the academies are also all collaborative. Students will have core disciplines and mentors while also being challenged to work with students in other disciplines. This creates a more open and creative cross-disiplinary dialogue and community of young artists who can work in other artistic “languages.”
August 4 -16, 2013
In this partnership program with the Atlantic Film Festival and Viewfinders, film students will learn both documentary and fictional film style of shooting for short collaborative and individual films. Young filmmakers will learn techniques of visual storytelling leading to an understanding of the creative collaboration in filmmaking between the writer, director, cinematographer, editor and actor in creating authentic, memorable films. Storyboarding, screen writing, team-building, producing and editing skills in our lab are key components. The program is taught by professional film-makers who will also give guidance on apprenticing for film and video, how to find a film school and about the business of movie-making. Films produced in this program have won awards at youth film festivals.
Students in the Film Academy develop their skills as artists through in depth instruction from professional artists, peer and instructor critique and lab and film-making time as well as through collaborations with other young artists.
All academy students are required at morning warm-up and should bring comfortable clothes.
