Film Production Workshop with Oksana Kazmina
During the workshop, the kids had an opportunity to learn about the practical aspects of motion picture production. Under the guidance of their supervisor and other film production professionals including screenwriters, cameramen, and art directors involved in the workshop, the kids chose the topics for their films, wrote screenplays, drew storyboards, and then shot and edited their videos.
* Film genres: feature film, documentary, music video, commercial, experimental video, etc.
By the end of the workshop, each participant had produced his/her own short film. All films were made into one compilation film that had been shown on a big screen to the kids, their foster carers, and visitors of the Centre. These films had also been shown at film festivals and other screening events.
The kids could choose the film topics themselves or pick from the ones suggested by their supervisor.
The plan was for the kids to shoot films portraying either themselves or their friends at the Centre and telling their own stories about who they are, what they like, what inspires them, what they aspire to become, and how they see their future.
Another option was to make a film about a theatre play and the performers. Each director could pick a certain performer film him/her during and in between rehearsals and later on the stage.
Two classes per week
