Crash Course: Create Your Own Film
Crash Course: "Create Your Own Film" by Joao MB Costa and Pauline Fernandes
This crash course will have the structure of a workshop where you will be divided into groups to write your own short story. Subsequently, you will learn the fundamentals of filmmaking and then you will have to apply the knowledge and film your story. For the sake of time, it will be one-take only production which means that are no multiple tasks but you shoot and move on to the next scene. At the end of the evening, all films created during the workshop will be screened. Good luck capturing your story on film!
