The create school workshop was held over two days and the goal was to have a roughly 3-5 minute long film made at the end of those two days. At the beginning of the workshop we were separated into small groups and given the task to create a film trailer in just 30 minutes. The goal of this task was not only to have a trailer made but to also help us understand a bit more how filming works and to have fun.
Once the 30 minutes were up we were showed everybody’s trailer and seen the hard work each group had put in to them. We were then put into two large groups and were given guidance and instructions on how to make a movie. We were then each given a responsibility to handle in our group such as camera man or location manager and decided what our film was going to be about. On the second day we began to film our movie but first our location managers and costume people made sure the rooms and areas we needed to film in were free and that we had the costume we needed for our actors.
Once that was done we went to each different location and filmed the scenes needed, which was a lot of fun to do. When we had filmed everything we went back to the classroom and edited and added music to all the footage. Once that was done and both groups were finished we each watched the other group’s film which was very amusing.
