Dublin, Belfast, Galway, Ireland
Arrive Date: June 17, 2018 End Date: July 15, 2018
The program covers fundamental aspects of filmmaking, from pre-production (story-boarding and scriptwriting), to production (camera and photographic technique), to post-production (editing, titling, special effects, and screen design). Students will utilize basic video, sound, lighting, and computer software as they develop a short film on a chosen genre, which could include narrative, documentary, experimental, or music video. Completed work will be exhibited publicly and suggestions and information on film festivals and other exhibition strategies will be discussed. Students will learn about Irish culture and tradition through meetings with Irish film directors, participating in a Literary Pub Crawl, visiting the Irish Film Institute and Titanic Museum, and many other activities.
