Introducing Dreamcatcher Film Camp at the Winnersh Film Studios: Where Creativity Meets Legacy!
Dreamcatcher Film Camp as always offers students the chance to become immersed in a vibrant learning environment that fosters innovation and nurtures artistic expression. The academy boasts state-of-the-art facilities, and we also have a cinema on site for our use. Students as always gain hands-on experience, playing all the roles from scriptwriter to producer, boom operator to camera op and director as they develop essential skills, and cultivate their unique artistic voice as they work towards making a short film in one week.
Shaping the future storytellers of tomorrow.
Students will learn to take a story from initial idea, through treatment and step outline, to a finished script for their final film. Story structure, plot outline, character development, tension, conflict building and resolution will be explored as they are used in filmmaking.
Students shoot on digital HD cameras and equipment used during the week includes, but is not limited to Tripods, Boom Poles, Wireless Mics, Stedicam etc,* and play each of the working roles in a short TV/film production. At the end of the 5 day course, students will have produced a short film which they take away as a digital file.
Students will be introduced to the language and practice of filmmaking. They will discuss shooting plans for their film. Students will find that directing the camera concerns more than just where to place the camera. Through hands-on demonstrations, they will learn how camera movement, visual arrangement and editing patterns not only depict the action but also express the underlying drama. Each student plays all the different roles on the crew when they are not acting in their own scenes.
Students need to bring a packed lunch (please avoid any foods with nuts).
