In this 2 day workshop we will focus on the language of cinema by exploring shot choices and composition from throughout film history. We will then work with scripted scenes from our favorite films, breaking up into teams to shoot the scenes with our own shot choices. At the end of the two day workshop, we will screen our films alongside the original scenes as they were shot for Hollywood. We will compare their shot choices with our own and that of our classmates and discuss what choices were made and why. This exercise is meant to sharpen the director’s eye and will incorporate learning skill sets such as shot listing, film producing and creating the bird’s eye shot diagram.
This workshop is free and open to 16 participants. All ages are welcome with adult supervision. Participants should plan on attending both Saturday and Sunday
