INTRODUCTION TO 35MM
MOTION PICTURE FILM MAKING


In this class participants will gain hands on experience shooting and editing 35mm motion picture film. Curriculum includes film stock, exposure, lenses, how to load, focus, run, maintain and operate the MOVIECAM Compact camera kit with ARRI Prime Lenses. Participants will spend two evenings familiarizing themselves with the camera package, and the following weekend will be spent shooting as a collective crew for each others short film productions. The goal is to shoot a short film on 35mm which you conceived, directed, shot and edited independently on film. We will also discuss how to promote your short piece through a list of friendly film festivals. All related equipment, materials and services will be provided for including a scan of the finished work. Finished projects will be presented after the conclusion of the course at our screening party.

If you were looking to rent this camera kit and lenses it would cost $2,000.00 a day, comparable opportunities to shoot on 35mm require registering through a University for a full term or flying to Prague for months. MONO NO AWARE has done everything possible to make this offering as affordable and accessible as possible to give you the ability to realize your idea on 35MM Motion Picture Film. Films made in previous offerings of this workshop look absolutely STUNNING. The edited films with more post work also look great, and one of the former participants. Erica Sheu, had their 35MM film screen at TIFF in 2019.
