For many movie fans, it can be hard to imagine all the technical and artistic skills that go into making a movie. The Emory Summer Filmmaking Institute will pull back the curtain with a three week hands-on moviemaking experience. Through film screenings, field trips, and workshopping sessions, students will practice using digital SLR movie cameras and green screen special effects, while learning digital workflow including how to edit movies in Adobe Premiere, record sound, and write and perform dramatic scenes. With access to state-of-the-art cameras and equipment, students will collaborate on small crews to produce their own short narrative films or music videos.
The Emory Summer Filmmaking Institute draws on the academic and technical resources of Emory’s acclaimed Film & Media Studies department, while also taking advantage of Atlanta’s growing prominence in the world of movie and television production. Ideal for students who are considering a film major or minor in college, those who would like to pursue a career in film, or those who are just interested in filmmaking as a hobby, this institute will expose students to both the academic study of film and the art and science of filmmaking. Students’ final projects will allow them an opportunity to apply their knowledge and exercise their filmmaking skills.
