48hour Film Making Challenge
August 29 @ 14:30 - August 31 @ 18:30€60
Andrej Kolencik & Tomasz Wierzbicki
We want participants to familiarize themselves with the basics of a storytelling, film language and the way various film tools influence the story they are going to show. It is supposed to be a simple story, thanks to which they will be able to focus on how to tell it in a right way.
Our goal is to make them interested in the film as such, to feel that everyone can be a filmmaker and that everyone can express themselves through art. We want participants to work in groups, because it is fundamental to work and communicate with the others on film projects – teamwork.
At the beginning of the workshop we will show a few examples of the types of shots from popular films and talk about the meaning of film language and tools we can use. Next, we will analyze all together one scene from the film chosen by us. This part is made to start the participants’ creativity and let them believe that their ideas can be realized in the film. We also want participants to feel that they can always ask tutors for advice at any time during the creation of the film and consult each stage of film making.
During the shooting, they will be present, but they also want to give creative freedom to the participants so that they can have the feeling that they are the true creators of their works. We plan to make a festive screening of films at the end of the festival, combined with a dinner and long conversations about participants films.
