This one-week program is designed for high school students between the ages of 14 and 18.
Young Artists! Join the 3D revolution. Be the first of your peers to use professional stereoscopic motion picture equipment to understand and visualize 3D concepts.
This course begins with the history of 3D and evolves into a hands on approach to professional 3D Cinema. By week’s end, students gain conceptual and practical understanding of 3D filmmaking. Led by an industry professional, students, create, shoot, and edit a short dramatic 3D film.
Students are encouraged to watch at least one 3D movie before class and if possible, watch the same film in 2D immediately afterwards.
About the Young Artists Program: Young Artists’ days are comprised of both classroom and field/location work: lectures and critiques, demonstrations, shooting, editing, writing, computer workflow and/or darkroom work, depending on the workshop. All instructors are talented industry professionals as well as experienced educators and each works with a teaching assistant, providing additional support for their class. The students are busy all day and into the mid-evening hours, attending presentations from visiting master faculty. All Young Artists reside at a nearby residence (a motel-style building, with four students to a room, gender specific, and private bath) located 3/4 of a mile from campus. The property is controlled by Maine Media Workshops and is used exclusively by students and their counselors. Students are shuttled to the main campus each morning for breakfast and to begin their day and are driven back at the end of the each day following their last class or other scheduled activity. All meals are taken together. Parents can indicate any special dietary needs upon registration. Counselors supervise the students 24 hours a day and help make group decisions about weekend activities like swimming, bowling and hiking. Coin laundry facilities are available on campus. A lobster dinner is served (there are other choices) on the last Friday night of each workshop and all Workshops students gather for an evening presentation of highlights from the week’s work. Parents are welcome to attend and meal tickets may be purchased in the Registration Office.
We recommend students have access to $75 over the week for incidentals, snacks, movies, field trips etc.
Check-in is on Sunday, between 3 and 6 PM and departure is on Saturday morning.
