Course Description

Learn More

Film-making has taken to the streets over the past few years; from Tik-Tok memes to the Duplass Brothers' award-winning feature film Tangerine (2015), the technology for making exciting and action-driven film now lives in our pockets. This workshop for imaginative teens is designed to engage young creative minds who have little or no technical film experience. We will devise a plot, write the script, direct the action, and puttogether the content for a short narrative film, all in one day using cellphones. In addition to learning about filmmaking processes and conventions, we'll discuss acting for the camera, verisimilitude on screen, directing, continuity and POV (point of view).

Participants should bring any cellphone with a camera they own or can borrow (with permission!) and ensure that they have adequate storage, full battery charge and a clean front lens. If you have a tripod with phone holder, a selfie-stick or other suspension device, feel free to bring it along. Please wear sensible clothing for walking through the woods, as we might have to go deep into the trees to find the best location for our film. Mosquito repellent might also be a good idea. Please bring a packed lunch and a reusable water bottle.
