FFV Academy of Film & Television gave a filmmaking workshop at IIM B.
A compendium of short filmic exercises and visual confections by first-time filmmakers. As a faculty member of the Expeimental Animation Program at Caifornia Institute of the Arts for several years, it was my pleasure to conduct the filmmaking techniques class for for upper-level undergrads and incoming graduate students. Most of my students had not made a film before; and this class served as a primer for 16mm production and post-production processes. Each student came up with an idea for their own 45-second film; then proceeded to storyboard, shoot, edit picture and mix sound over the course of the semester. Each student had a single three hour session to shoot their project; with total responsibility for the planning, set and equipment prep, lighting, cinematography and directing. Other class members served as indentured labor, er.. crew people. As the class was designed for students in the experimental animation program, our workshop productions always included an inventive mix of live-action, animation and in-camera effects.
