CCP Workshops: Basic Filmmaking and Intro to Producing
Cinemalaya’s advanced courses in directing and producing are now open for applications. Running from May 8 to June 30 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, the workshops aim to challenge students to have the skills and knowledge helping them to produce the next hit films of Cinemalaya. Applications will be accepted until April 20.
Basic Filmmaking: The Silent Film
This workshop is to be led by award-winning director Carlos Siguion-Reyna, who received his M.F.A. in film from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. The six-week course in directing is to enable the students to:
- apply the basics of film language in film exercises
- master the classic conventions and tools of the film directors
The course’s purpose is to let the students find their cinematic voice within the basic language of narrative film.
Towards the end of the course, each student will direct their own keystone project: a five-minute silent digital film in a narrative structure that shall be shot on day exterior locations and shall use sound effects but not music.
Introduction to Producing
This workshop is to be led by John Paul Su, Master of Fine Arts graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, a two-time recipient of Ani ng Dangal award and was named one of the Outstanding Filipino Artist in the field of Cinema in 2016. Students are advised to learn Movie Magic prior the beginning of the four-week course. This class will:
- cover the different elements and fundamental skills and procedures used in making a film
- require students to prepare a production book for their shoot by the third week
