Program description

Vacation Plus Film - 4 weeks

The 4-week Vacation Plus Film course is ideal for students who want to combine their English language studies with an introduction to filmmaking and film theory for a short time period during the summer.

Students receive 20 lessons (15 hours) of English and filmmaking lessons per week. Topics vary each week, but students receive a brief overview of filmmaking, including pre-production, production, and post-production of a film scene, as well as an introduction to film theory and practice. Group work is an essential element of this course so attendance is critical to students' success in the course.

Course content includes:

1. Contemporary Filmmaking: the history of Hollywood — the business of making films, from blockbusters to independent film
2. Storytelling in Scenes — story structure, concept development, visual storytelling methods
3. Acting Basics — techniques for role preparation, expression through body and language
4. Production — filming techniques, cinematic framing, lighting and sound
5. Post Production — video editing techniques and practice, types of software
