Make a film in a day… or a week

In these workshops you learn basic filmmaking techniques and tips. You will create a story outline, learn or expand your lighting and camera skills, and practice editing and sound. At the end of the workshop, you will have produced a 60-90 second video. R2R will work with you to decide which form it will take: experimental, narrative, animated, documentary, or digital storytelling.

Our workshop offerings include:

With a point and shoot camera, students will make expressive, imaginative, and cutting-edge animation using lightning doodles, pixilation, stop motion or more traditional animation techniques.

Digital Storytelling
Digital stories are first-person narratives that are illustrated with animation, photographs, music, video clips, and some live action. In this workshop students will be guided through the stages of preparation, script writing, image selection and editing of their stories.

Documentary is a powerful medium for communicating a message and instigating change. In this exciting workshop students learn how to use film to ask hard-hitting questions and tell real-life stories about the issues they care about.

iPad Workshop
Explore iPad photography and video editing. This workshop encourages students to create unique short videos about local history.

Sound Design
Students explore the three essential ingredients of a soundtrack: dialogue, sound effects and music. Small teams generate soundtracks to pre-rendered videos using iMovie and GarageBand.
