The Griffith University Film School Winter Study Tour is a week long course in June 2017, that gives students the skills to make and star in their own ten-minute action movie. Working with academics from one of Australia’s oldest art and design colleges, the immersion program will cover the technical and theoretical aspects of film. Students will hear from experts, watch screenings from some of the most talented up and coming students, and visit one of Australia’s most important film making lots (and the set of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film) Warner Bros. Movie World. and much more.
No film making experience is necessary to enrol in this program
The basic overview of the week would be to have the students produce a short action sequence (5-8 shots) on the Naval ship at the Maritime museum. This would involve students participating in all stages of production as cast and crew on the shoot as well as editing, foley and VFX. The film would be scripted and prepared in advance and involve some elements of movie magic including basic green screen and/or motion tracking. They would leave with a short action film starring themselves to take home and share with their friends on social media. Ideally there would be a number of inspiring presentations as well as field trips for the students to Movie World and Post Production facilities, GOMA etc.
Study Tour Objectives: To provide participants with practical insights into the craft of motion picture storytelling and production.
Learning Outcomes: 1. Identify the major processes, practices and workflows involved in professional audiovisual production. 2.
