Filmmaking Masterclass Course Overview

Filmmaking is a multi-stage process that begins with an idea, initial plot, or commission and progresses via casting, scriptwriting, shooting, editing, and screening to the final product, which is released and exhibited. It is a powerful medium for storytelling, artistic expression, entertainment, and communication of ideas to a global audience. This Filmmaking masterclass contains all the necessary concepts of film production, from screenwriting to finishing a film. Filmmaking commences with pre-production, including research, casting, and location scouting, then shooting, and ends with the post-production phase. Individuals with excellent filmmaking skills will get higher designations as producers, directors, and writers and climb the ladder of success in a short span of time.

This 1-day Filmmaking Masterclass course provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the filmmaking process, from development to distribution, and how to choose the best technology for capturing scenes. In this comprehensive filmmaking course, aspiring filmmakers will learn the art of storytelling through the lens, of concept development to post-production. During this masterclass, delegates will learn about lighting techniques that depict mood and atmosphere, as well as various ways to make the look of a video better and more attractive. They will also learn about scrimping on the sound of a project as a pre-production process and ways to choose and use appropriate microphones. This course is led by our highly professional trainer who has years of teaching experience and makes delegates familiar with filmmaking methodologies.

Course Objectives:

  • To specify the format of the screenplay more than just scene descriptions and dialogue
  • To plan everything from budgeting to pre-visualising shots using storyboards
  • To match colour temperature of the source by balancing other light sources
  • To make a realistic shooting schedule requires determining resources
  • To create a season's arc in a story by developing multiple storylines
  • To determine sound edits and effects needed to create video music

At the end of this training course, delegates will be able to shoot realistic scenes using high-quality cameras and generate sound effects by editing and mixing different recordings. They will also be able to create a polished cut by preparing for film festivals and sequencing the shots for high-end finishing.
