This workshop is for teens who want to learn the latest skills and techniques in filmmaking from accomplished filmmakers and working professionals. The workshop is intense and offers hands-on opportunities to use HD cameras as well as professional sound and lighting equipment. Students design shots, plan action, light scenes, conduct interviews and direct a crew and actors. Students learn the roles of director, cinematographer, camera operator, camera assistant, grip, gaffer and boom operator.
Participants in the Young Filmmakers workshop produce music videos and dramatic shorts. Scripts are provided, but students are encouraged to bring their own ideas to develop. Professional editors work with students to complete projects. Students receive a DVD of their projects and leave with an understanding of the filmmaking process and a sense of their individual talents. Students can attend master screenings and lectures, hike, swim and explore the beauty of Midcoast Maine.
