This summer, two local filmmakers are working together to put on a weeklong cinema boot-camp for young aspiring filmmakers from around southwest Missouri. KSMU’s Shane Franklin spoke with one of the filmmakers, and has details on the event.
Brandon Goodwin of Goodwin Films and Brook Linder- writer, director, and cinematographer for shorts like Ghoul School and Thin Air, will share their experiences and knowledge as filmmakers with youth ages 16 to 20.
The Springfield Cinema Camp will take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. July 15-20th, and has a two-fold goal. The first of which is to empower students with techniques in cinematography, editing, directing, producing, lighting, and screenwriting, says Goodwin. Then secondly, to create a local community of filmmakers who can then help each other with local projects in the future.
“This is working with professional filmmakers from the area that are going to show you how they work every day, and they’re going to show you their workflow and they are going to show you techniques that are very difficult to pick up on your own. You can learn a lot of this stuff on your own, but we want to basically take our last ten years of knowledge and say. ‘Hey, if I was starting out at 16 right now as an aspiring filmmaker, then these are the things you need to know right now,’” says Goodwin.
The boot-camp is hosted and facilitated by Dave Davis, the 2009 Springfield Public Schools Teacher of the Year, and will take place inside the media labs at Hillcrest High School.
The week will end with a big team project for students to showcase their newly honed skills. The results of these projects will be offered at the Moxie Cinema on Saturday, July 20th, for anyone who would like to attend.
Registration for the event is due by June 14th, with a cost of $375 for students, or $325 if the student shoots with their own DSLR video enabled camera.
