Filmmaking for the future filmmakers

The workshop includes on-location hands-on camera work and consultation, as participants work together in teams to complete individual tasks.

Participants will be able to work with professional cinema grade cameras (like the RED EPIC Dragon 35mm digital cinema camera) using various grip equipment (4K Drone, Freefly Mövi) and try out professional color grading solutions (like Assimilate Scratch system).

Pre-requisites:
None. But we ask all participants to answer to a questionnaire to let us adjust the style of the class to their needs and create the teams accordingly.

Best film practices

It focuses on the fundamental, sensible, easily applied skills. Participants will quickly become adept at real-world situations through demonstrations, Q&A’s, and hands-on practices.

You will learn the tips and tricks to creating cinema grade results without a big budget.

Our philosophy is to demystify filmmaking by teaching easy-to-learn and practical-to-use techniques. We emphasize hands-on practice over textbook theories.

Ideal for first time filmmakers, professional and amateur photographers who want to expand their knowledge and anyone interested in filmmaking.
