INTENSIVE FILMMAKING PROGRAM
Filmmakers Ink offers a University film school experience in a summer camp setting. The Filmmakers Ink programs offer courses that train young filmmakers at three different levels and are designed to grow with their expanding knowledge of filmmaking. Guided by our staff of film professionals, our young filmmakers learn by doing as they develop the key creative and technical skills required for exceptional filmmaking.
INTENSIVE FILMMAKING/ACTING 1
This Filmmakers Ink program is for those with a passion for film and/or film acting, ready to learn to make consistently good movies. Professional filmmakers will help each young filmmaker experience the moviemaking process from script writing through pre-production and filming. Everyone will develop scripts, use professional filmmaking equipment, learn performance technique designed for Actors and Directors, and work in each of the main crew positions, including Director, 1st AD (Assistant Director), DP (Director of Photography), Gaffer (lighting) and Sound, while making movies together.
