Los Angeles, CA
Home to the Oscars, Golden Globes, and Emmys award ceremonies, Los Angeles has long been recognized as the film and movie capital of the world. What better environment to complement your passion for filmmaking. Summer Springboard’s Filmmaking course on the campus of UCLA focuses on the fundamental elements, including script writing & pre-production, directing, camera operation & cinematography, sound design, and editing. Students will be able to explore which of these areas truly resonates with their passion for filmmaking, and put their skills to test. Students will work in groups to create a short film, from script writing to production. They will learn from an experienced instructor in the industry, as well as gain insight and tips from others working in the entertainment industry.
Students will explore and practice the main elements of filmmaking throughout much of the first week, and then work in groups to produce a short-film over the course of the second week. Within their groups, students will have the opportunity to focus in on the element of the filmmaking process they’re best suited for and most passionate about.

Go behind the lens and discover the secrets of movie making magic with a visit to a film studio, production facility or a motion picture business in LA. Previously, students visited an area production company (Warner Brothers Studios, Paramount Pictures, Melody Ranch, or elsewhere), as well as the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, where they could see film sets, movie memorabilia, and production in action. In the past, guest speakers have also been brought in, pending availability, to allow students the opportunity to hear first-hand about various “non-film” aspects of the industry.
