NUTV Summer Film School provides beginner filmmakers with a crash course in all the skills you need to bring a story to life on camera. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from May-August, 2019, Summer Film School students take workshops taught by local industry professionals and work together to create six short films. Summer Film School workshops offer students the chance to learn a variety of filmmaking skills,which they will later apply on their own sets, as well as on the other students’ productions.
Students not only get to hone their skills by writing and directing their own film, they also rotate through the roles of Writer/Director, Producer, Camera, Sound, Assistant Director and Art Director.on other students sets. This teamwork builds a crew of young filmmakers that have an array of skills and can work together. Students will take part in the following advanced workshops taught by film industry professionals:
Producing and Directing
Art Direction & Assistant Directing
Casting/Working with Actors
All Summer Film School films will be screened at the end of the summer in the NUTV Student Film Festival. This festival seeks to encourage young filmmakers from around Alberta by promoting their talent and highlighting Alberta’s best student films. This includes the short films created by students during the NUTV Summer Film School program.
