Are you interested in building your skill set for film? Are you an artist looking for a new perspective on architecture and environmental photography? FilmDayton offers a great class for beginners who are looking to break into the industry, photographers who are looking for a new perspective, or pros who want to strengthen their skill set.
In the beautiful setting of the Dayton Art Institute, students will get some practical knowledge and then be set loose to snap pictures (no flash) within the building and through the historic surrounding neighborhood. Great prep work for aspiring production/location coordinators and a lot of fun for creative photographers. Seats are limited, so early registration is encouraged.
We’ll provide an inside look at one of the major necessities for the film industry. There are so many questions: What makes a good location? How do you handle the production logistics? How do you snap the best picture to convey the feel of the location to the producer? And once you find that perfect spot, how do you get all the required permissions to film there? This workshop will answer those questions and so much more! And lest you think this workshop is JUST for photographers or aspiring location managers, oh no my friend. Indie filmmakers often have trouble getting great locations for their projects. This workshop will help filmmakers with the skills needed to find and secure fantastic locations, and how to get it all done when resources are limited.
Topics to be covered include:
Location Contracts and Insurance,
Capturing the Best Picture,
Working with Individual Homeowners, Businesses and Government Agencies,
Location Responsibilities Before, During and After the Shoot
FilmDayton welcomes Kate Amer – a Location Manager / Production Manager with 25+ years of experience. Kate most recently worked on The Avengers, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and the FX hit Justified.
Talented location scouts are necessary in the industry – and very in demand. This workshop will get you started and help you make some great connections.
