Newtown

The Filmmakers Ink programs offer courses that train young filmmakers at three different levels and are designed to grow with their expanding knowledge of filmmaking.  Guided by our staff of film professionals, our young filmmakers learn by doing as they develop the key creative and technical skills required for exceptional filmmaking.

Intensive 1 Filmmaking / Acting

Learn the process of making good films, fast. Pro filmmakers will help each young filmmaker build the filmmaking instincts needed to direct, capture the right footage and run the set. Learn Acting technique for direction and performance. Experience the moviemaking process from script writing through pre-production and filming. Everyone will develop scripts, and work in each of the main crew positions, including Director, 1st AD (Assistant Director), DP (Director of Photography), Gaffer (Lighting) and Boom Operator (Sound), while practicing the collaboration skills necessary to make movies with their film tribe.
