The Artizen Company, in partnership with Eyedrum Art and Music, is announcing an exciting second year of our Summer Film Intensive: a hands-on filmmaking program, located in Eyedrum’s historic hundred year old facility in Atlanta’s downtown area, that will give participants the opportunity to develop and produce an original, festival-worthy, short film with industry professionals.
The four-week intensive led by The Artizen Company’s Co-founder and Artistic Director, Aimee McCoy, former Artists and Youth Program leader at PushPush Theater and Film beside award-winning Writer/Director/Producer Tim Habeger. Along with daily instruction from Ms. McCoy, your teens will attend workshops with guest instructors, that will kickstart their own journey into independent filmmaking. The program will culminate in a dailies screening for family and friends, followed by a larger premier screening of the finished film in the Fall.
The program is open to highly motivated youths age 12-18 (special consideration needed for younger participants) interested in a focused and collaborative filmmaking experience - in front of the camera and/or behind the camera. Through concentrated teamwork and leadership opportunities, participants will not only have professional work to show for their efforts, but also increase their knowledge and skills in such areas as:
Film Set Etiquette
Acting on Camera
The Director’s Job
Cinematography & Camera Operation
Costumes & Make-up
Lighting and Grip
Experience is helpful but not required. However, each candidate must complete our review process, before the course begins, to ascertain their level of participation, motivation, and ability to work within a team. Space is limited due to the nature of the program, so start the process early. An interview is required for enrollment.
