The Kooman brothers of Unveil Studios designed the training around their journey in independent filmmaking (learn more at www.unveilstudios.com). From documentary to dramatic script writing, learn how to light a set, direct the action, capture sound and picture, and edit the footage into a compelling story. At the end of this one-week filmmaking camp, participants will have a whole new set of tools for storytelling.
Hands-On workshops accelerate learning! The Filmmaking Camp fee includes training and hands-on workshops with professional digital HD equipment, lighting and sound gear, and professional editing suites. Post-production will include training and overview of Final Cut X, Premiere Pro and Da Vinci Resolve. The Filmmaking Camp workshops are taught by working filmmakers and professional mentors.
room & board & dvd
Room & Board option is available for up to 20 participants with our friendly host families, and is also a great way to get to know other filmmakers. A DVD of the completed Filmmaking Camp short films is available for purchase by all participants (mailed after the Film Camp).
