Learning Area: 

The time has arrived and we have 6 SQUADS! Filmmaking teams have gathered and registered though there is still time to get a team of your own or join one of the teams involved! August 25th-27th is this years competition date.

Come and learn to make a movie in the form of a short film. If you are creative, love films, willing to learn and study what makes the best shots we will discover the basics of film making together.

Learn what makes a movie, by studying specific genres and filming conventions. You will look in-depth at the skills of filmmakers who have refined their craft to portrait genre and narrative. We will look at scripts to gain meaning and determine narrative. You will critic cinematography, editing, sound, lighting and music.

You will also learn about the roles in the pre-production, post-production and of course could have a possible acting role, so be prepared. The National 48 Hours Film Festival where Peter Jackson views every film made to choose his wild card entries every year is held over an entire weekend.

Credits in this class are based on how much of a role a student plays in the planning and the completion of the film being made. The actual outcome of this class is that ALL students will learn at least one of the skills needed for the actual production of a movie. Let’s do it.
