From the Idea, to the Film
In this workshop, we begin with a word, a simple game of narration and we cover the complete process of filmmaking: the idea, the script, the director's concept, management and production, settings and actors, cinematography and photography and in the end, shooting, editing and presenting the final work to an audience. In the 14 days of the workshop, participants get to experience a condensed but complete journey into filmmaking.
Our method is: lessons on the basic theory of the narration of cinema (script, direction, photography, sound, editing) with practical applications and exercises. At the same time, participants begin the creation of short stories, by starting with a word. By the end of the first week, the stories develop into short film scripts and some will be chosen to be made into actual films. What follows is the production: settings, actors, props etc. After that, the time comes for shooting. The participants have the chance to experience firsthand all the roles of a film crew. Then comes the editing and at the last day of the workshop the works are presented to all the participants, villagers and film enthusiasts of the area.
Workshop no.1 is a short but tiring marathon. An exciting marathon, nonetheless. Apart from theory, film history and practice, there are also screenings of films and useful extracts. The only things that participants need are a laptop and a camera.
