Summer Odyssey 2016: Oscar Winners (Norton House x HK Jockey Club)
Oscar Winners 2016
During this 3-day programme, the students came to terms with the different techniques, stages, and processes required to create a short movie. The course began with students being introduced to the very basic of movie creation, such as different filming angles, storyboarding, the importance of representation, and how to plan and draft a script. Generally, the importance of planning and preparation when it comes to movie shooting was emphasised heavily!
On the second day, it was time to start filming and put our plan to action. Students worked together and became actors, cinematographers, and directors to ensure that their short movie turned out to the best of their abilities.
Finally, it was time to engage in post-production aspects of film making, and together we explored an array of functions available with iMovie and also professional movie making software such as Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. The struggles of video editing were all worth it in the end, as not only did it act as valuable experience for the students to have an idea of what it’s like to create a movie, but most importantly they were extremely happy and satisfied with the final product.
