Update April 2021: Next course will happen in July 2022.
Tallinn Summer School, in cooperation with the Baltic Film, Media, Arts and Communication School (BFM) offers an inspiring course of practical film-making.
During the three-week course, experienced tutors will take you through the stages of filmmaking, from script to post-production and as a result you will take home your own short film. The three weeks are divided into 3 cycles of film production.
During the first week you will receive a quick introduction to the craft of filmmaking and will work on your own creative ideas. Together with an practitioner, you will develop a script for a short or documentary film and develop a script in groups. At the same week you will get knowledge about storytelling and storyboard.
The second week will be spent on capturing the ideas with the camera. You will receive expert tips from a professional cameraman and you will start shooting your own film. The third week’s focus will be editing. After having lectures on the different approaches to montage, you will cut your own film using the modern post-production facilities at BFM. The course will end with the screening of the films in the school cinema. Groups will use the equipment, film studios and editing facilities of BFM.
