Become a Filmmaker

No greater satisfaction:
you're sitting in your favorite movie theater, you look around. There is also the friend you invited three days ago. Every so often someone turns to you with an admiring look.
Then the light turn off. On the screen your first images, the title of your film, your name.
Breathe, though ... God, what a thrill!
The images, which by now you know frame by frame, leave room for memories ... Memories of internal and external struggles, of discussions, of some disappointment, of so much happiness ... Memories of your companions, of the complicity with which you they helped build this movie and you theirs. Remember the passionate discussions with your teachers, always careful to guide you in the best way to get you where you wanted to go.
How many obstacles overcome and how many satisfactions!
This time should created by you, and you offer it to the world ... forever ...

COST AND SCHEDULE OF THE WHOLE FORMATION

During this complete course you will study:

SCRIPT WRITING

  The script is the first step in the conception of a film. To say of many greatest, the most important part of the processing of the film. Unfortunately, even the one that the public knows less about.
We will study together the structure of a film, from the most free, personal and creative to the classic forms of conventional cinema. Then you will choose your way of expressing yourself in this art.

We will analyze known movies, their structure, their defects, their strong and innovative points.
We will study together how to write a screenplay from A to Z.
You will be able to conceive a filmic structure, create unforgettable sequences, imagine powerful characters.
We will study the form and style to use to write, the plot, the characters, the relationships, the character evolution.
We will see the "traps" to be avoided both for writing "original screenplays" and for film adaptations.

We will analyze the possible clichés of your story, the flaws, the weakest moments. We will help you write an unforgettable story, correcting normal mistakes for novices. At the end of the biennium you will be able to write a script in its different stages of development: the idea, the subject, the step outline, the synopsis, the treatment and the final script (or continuity).

But above all: YOU WILL WRITE

Or rather: WE WILL WRITE, all together the movies of each other.

FILM SHOOTING

  Even if you don't shoot in the future, knowing the techniques allows you to talk to your technicians clearly.

Know the different types of cameras, procedures, shooting techniques, lenses, machines, etc.

Know the focal lengths, the diaphragms, the concept of depth of field, the sensitivity, the movements of camera, etc.

Have some notions of light, picture, effects, etc.

In short: YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PUT BEHIND THE CAMERA AND SHOOT

But we will be there to guide you.

FILM DIRECTING

  Knowing how to speak to an actor, an actress, understanding them, is an art. And the result can be seen. Always!

But you will also need to know how to value it, how him to trust you, when it is lacking. Knowing how to push him to go farther, where he is afraid, yet ultimately it was so simple.

Actors direction: an art!

But how can we forget that the result of a comic or dramatic action depends on an infinite number of factors: The angle of view, the positions of the camera, the choice of the lens, the movement of the camera, the value of the frame, the long take, the light, the scene, the costumes, the make-up, etc. etc. etc.

All things you need to know, at least in principle.

Once again: YOU WILL HAVE TO DO IT, DO IT and STILL DO IT

But always under our watchful eyes.

EDITING and POST PRODUCTION

  Even if in the future you won't do the editing. It represents the most decisive part of the form you will give to your film. Knowing the rules is vital!

A scene can change radically with a different montage.

So much so that Mario Feroce speaks of "second writing" or of "third handwriting" (the second being on the set).

It is clear that, on the set, the director can rewrite scenes (or part of them) or give a new shape to an already written scene. In the editing, however, the new writing can lead to a reorganization of the lineup, to the pure and simple cutting of one or more scenes, to the amputation of a part of them, to a fragmentation / distortion of one or more scenes, etc.

Not to mention the voice overs, colorimetry, sound design, music, etc. etc. etc.

But there is only one method: DO and DO AGAIN!

And we will always be there to guide you.
