Silence, Ready to Roll…!
Immediately an idea or theme is proposed, so as to stimulate reactions and new input from the kids – many discussions follow before reaching a decision all together. Starting from the first day of their stay, kids begin to sketch drawings and to write down their stories or dreams; they take turns experimenting what it implies to film each other in action. The plot gradually takes shape… At this point all the staff splits up the participants dividing them in groups in order to allow everybody to take part in each artistic field involved. The set design, creating locations and costumes have a priority since they need to be ready before the actual filming takes place. At the same time, protagonists are chosen giving everybody an equal opportunity. The composition of the sound track is a steady work in progress: often it needs to follow events and other times it is the leading role. During the final days, whilst working at the editing, time is dedicated to preparing the credits. At the end of the project, this short movie created by the kids of Arteaparte, will be shown parents and friends and each kid will triumphantly take home their own DVD – an unforgettable memory!
FILM PROJECT 07-20 July 2019 (age 9 to 15)
Two weeks dedicated to developing a film divided in two sections.
During these two weeks the children will experience a full immersion in the forest and will get a chance to understand better the forest-community.
The first week offers the novelty for the children to learn about the bird’s eye view… through the use of drones.
The second week concentrates on joining together the film sequences and editing the final product.
The two weeks are separate experiences under a common theme, therefore it is also possible to participate in only one of the weeks.
As usual, sound track and all set-design work (composed and built by the children themselves) will frame this poetic video-story; singing and acting will naturally be in English.
A project for learning how to film besides playing all character-roles, on stage and back stage.
