End to End Film-making, a new Summer School workshop
By Patricia Aguilera

“End to End Film-making is designed to emulate the entire film process” explains film director Bryan Hudkins. Hudkins talks about a new workshop offered as part of the Corban Estate Arts Centre’s Summer School programme, 13 – 17 January 2014.

 Bryan Hudkins is an American film director and scriptwriter with a remarkable trajectory in the film industry. His experience includes an internship at Walden Media, producers of The Chronicles of Narnia series, as well as working in the Hollywood film Aliens in the Attic. Hudkins has directed TV commercials, participated in international and local film festivals and is co-founder of Dreams in Shadow, a joint venture with a group of passionate industry professionals.  The Dreams in Shadow team includes film and art directors, stunt coaches, storyboard drafters, executive producers, together with camera and lighting experts.

In this Summer School workshop, participants will learn the art and business of film-making as they develop a story, create a budget, pitch it to studios, hash out storyboards, then cast and shoot a film with their team. In the edit room they will work with professional editors to prepare for the screening.  “Workshop participants will emerge with an arsenal of tools ready for tackling any film project”, says Hudkins.   

Enrolments for End to End film-making and other Summer School workshops are now open.  Ensure a place.  T: 8384455  E:  More info
