The film making course takes place in the afternoon and the General English course is the basis for the morning activities.
Each weekday afternoon students will engage in film making workshops, excluding Wednesday when they will take part in a full day excursion.
The workshops will cover a variety of elements of film making including planning (pre-production), filming (production) and editing (post-production). Students will cover the use of the camera, lighting and audio equipment and will learn to use professional filming techniques alongside looking at various genres of film. They will aim to capture their story through camera, lighting and sound, bringing it all together in post-production using professional editing techniques and software. The course includes visual effects workshops including the use of the green screen.
Workshops are aimed at students with little or no experience in film making. Finally, students will view their work on the big screen at Bosworth Hall and have a chance to critique and review.
