Zombie Movie (ages 13+)
November 28, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 3:50 pm
This is a 2-day class each week; Tuesday and Wednesday 9:30am-3:50pm. Students who enroll in the Express session movie making classes must be committed to attending all scheduled class times. All teams involved in the production of the movie depend on each other to complete their parts in order to be successful- and each team relies on each member to be present and willing to participate to make the team successful!
Filming dates TBA.
This first week is oriented toward teaching the basics of stunt fighting and the development of character acting. Students will then use their new skills to create roles and characters for the Express movie.
Students will start by observing the acting auditions during the actor screen tests, then create the script for the movie based on the personalities of the actors. Students will learn screenwriting basics and techniques, and elements such as creating suspense and character consistency. Screenwriting students are encouraged to be part of the Production Team. At the end of the session, one student will be selected as Script Supervisor. The Script Supervisor will continue the screenwriting role as part of the Production Team, adding and editing the script as the movie progresses. Screenwriters are welcome to assume other roles on the production and post production team. and will be required to attend and participate in both roles.
Students enrolled for the Production Express session will need to attend and participate in the Acting Screen tests to learn what kinds of equipment will be used for the filming, sound creation and lighting involved in the production of the movie. Students in production will have roles as Director, Assistant Director, Cameras A&B, Second Assistant Camera, Sound, Producers and Script Supervisor.
In a production this big, there is bound to be down time where students aren’t working directly on something related to the movie. In the case of those times, students will be working on independent or guided projects. These projects will tie in educationally to film making.
