Workshops & Intensives

Summer Digital Filmmaking Intensive

Follow us on Facebook.

The School of Theater, Film and Media Arts is proud to offer a two-week Summer Digital Filmmaking Intensive for high school students of all levels. This workshop centers on the creative and technical fundamentals of screenwriting, cinematography, on-screen performance and directing, editing and sound for digital short storytelling. With the mentorship of the instructor and undergraduate teaching assistants, each student crew rotates positions and manages the filmmaking process from inception through completion. 

By the end of this dynamic 10-day program, students will have completed their own film that includes dramatic arc, performance technique, cinematic framing and composition, shot sequencing, continuity editing and double-system sound design. Title design and end credits will be created for complete finessing of each project.

We conclude the intensive with an on-campus final screening event for friends and family. Additionally, all films are submitted for consideration to screen in a special program at Temple University’s annual Derek Freese Youth Media Festival.
