  • Young Filmmakers Workshop

    YOUNG FILMMAKERS WORKSHOP (YFW). New in 2019!
    Co-ed Ages 9 - 18
    June 24- July 12 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM (Three week camp)
    Fee: $1350.00

    *Lunch is INCLUDED in the cost of the camp for weeks of 6/24 and 7/8.
     
    YFW is specifically designed for and targeted to the younger area filmmakers.
    Young Filmmaker Workshop participants have the opportunity to become involved in all aspects of the filmmaking process; production design, staging, acting, directing, observation and analysis. Under the guidance of experienced professionals, students learn all the areas of
    filmmaking while working on projects and a short feature film.
     
    Students study the history of film by watching, discussing, and reproducing the way great filmmakers achieve the effects that captivate audiences.
    Participants work in each of the studios – production design, acting, directing – expanding their knowledge of, and skill-building in, the arts and crafts of moviemaking.
     
    Workshop options for the Young Filmmakers Summer Camp include Explorations in Film,
    Production Design, Acting for the Camera, and Filmmaking. Please visit our website for details on each workshop to ensure your child’s perfect fit. Youngfilmmakersworkshop.org
     
    Instruction begins with the beginning/intermediate elements of moviemaking moving forward to accommodate student’s needs, including lighting, composition, camera movement, continuity and directing while shooting a short narrative feature film. Best of all, the program
    culminates in a red-carpet premiere of the student’s films at Baltimore’s Landmark Theatres in Harbor East. Paparazzi, a limousine ride to the Premiere for all students and catering of the event is included! Lights, camera, action! “I’m ready for my closeup Mr DeMille”.

    YOUNG FILMMAKERS WORKSHOP    CLASSES FOR 2019 at LOYOLA BLAKEFIELD
     
            EXPLORATIONS IN FILM is specifically designed and targeted to the younger Young Filmmakers Workshop participants. This course gives students the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of filmmaking: design, production, acting, directing, observation and analysis. Under the guidance of experienced professionals, students learn all aspects of filmmaking while working on individual projects and short narrative films. Students also study the history of film by watching, discussing and  reproducing the ways great filmmakers achieve the effects that captivate audiences. Students work in each of the studios expanding their knowledge of, and skill-building in, the arts and crafts of moviemaking.
     
            PRODUCTION DESIGN is a unique opportunity for anyone loving art but who doesn't necessarily "color within the lines" to work behind-the-scenes adding production values to the student films. Script analysis, design conception, character analysis, creating props, sets, makeup, and costumes for films is an important aspect of moviemaking.  Students spend the first week designing and building props, sets and makeup and the second and third weeks applying their work to narrative films.
     
            ACTING FOR THE CAMERA The emphasis is on developing on-camera, as opposed to theatrical, dramatic skills in an environment where each student actor is challenged to stretch her or his abilities to their maximum potential. This is accomplished by working in digital video on assigned scene projects with other workshop students. There will be critiques of the scene work and continuing exercises to sharpen those skills as well as discussions of issues and problems associated with acting in film and video.
     
            FILMMAKING  Students are trained in all aspects of the filmmaker's craft. They have the opportunity to break down scripts, storyboard them, produce shot lists, light, rehearse, block the scenes, and shoot and direct the actors while recording the sound and taking continuity notes. The various jobs on a working film crew are rotated daily. Composition, camera movement, and modular lighting are also covered. By week three the students have completed shooting a 14 - 15 minute narrative film.
     
           YOUNG FILMMAKERS WORKSHOP culminates on a Sunday morning in the fall with the students arriving in limousines for the Red Carpet Premiere as their films are shown on a giant movie screen at the Landmark Theatres in the Fells Point area of downtown Baltimore.
