Pictures from the July 2006 class.
The Guerilla Filmmaker's Workshop is a program designed to teach high school & college students skills in advanced filmmaking. The program is endorsed by Anthology Film Archives and documentary filmmaker Artemis Willis.
The Eastman Kodak Company pioneered Super 8mm film in the 1960s as an easy to use film format for both amateurs and professionals. The skills you will learn while working with Super 8mm will grant a level of proficiency in motion picture media that has previously been available only at the college level. A few of the topics you will learn at the GFW are: image composition, manual editing, studio lighting, exposure, contrast ratios, color and sound. By the end of the program, you will shoot and edit your own short film on Super 8mm to be screened on the last day of class. Please take a look at last year's syllabus.
The course is taught by filmmakers Adam Blumenberg and Benjamin Rutkowski. Both have extensive experience in the fields of film, video and photography.
Class will be held for two weeks in August, Monday August 20th to Friday August 31th. The cost of tuition is $300 and covers all materials including film stock and processing. This cost should not deter a student from applying; if a student truly cannot afford the cost of the program, tuition assistance is available.
