“From the story to the screen, filmmaking is an art form that demands collaboration. These workshops teach students the many aspects of what it takes to create a film, both the technical and the creative. Through professional instruction, critique, and collaboration the students cover the process of putting together a film that can be understood by an audience other than their peers.”
- Workshops are designed for students 12 to 18 years of age, but can be customized for younger students.
- Students will cover all the aspects of the filmmaking process: screenwriting, acting, lighting, shooting, and editing. Emphasis is placed on the students understanding the contribution of the multiple jobs that must be filled for a film to be created.
- Workshops’ content can be tailored to both short and long term residencies.
Lower Kuskokwim School District, June 2011
Co-taught an 8 day filmmaking intensive for highschool students. Worked to design the curriculum that would expose students to filmmaking, as well as introduce them to career pathways and opportunities within the film industry.
- students started with a lesson on screen writing, then throughout the week they worked together in groups to learn all aspects of filmmaking (script writing, shooting, lighting, acting, editing, and sound design) as they produced their own 2 min film
- guest instructors taught screenwriting, lighting, and acting
