In an exciting collaboration between Mountainfilm, Telluride TV and Telluride Academy comes the student Documentary Filmmaking program! This engaging, educational and intimate project-based program is designed to allow aspiring film makers the opportunity to participate in an “active audience” endeavor that, from start-to-finish will challenge them to tell an authentic story through film. Students will benefit from the artistic eye of a Mountainfilm acclaimed filmmaker, the expertise and technical direction of a Telluride TV specialist and the adventurous spirit of an Academy instructor. This program will be a balanced blend of technical direction, on-location filming and ample time in the studio for workshops focused on editing and final production. Throughout this 10-day intensive, students will rotate between the numerous roles of filmmaking such as directing, lighting, sound and more. The grand finale will be held in a local venue at the end of the second week. This world premiere will showcase student films in true Mountainfilm style! Telluride Academy, Mountainfilm & Telluride TV are teaming up again to offer a documentary film camp July 2017. Students will conceptualize a topic and write, film and edit a documentary film. This camp will be an intensive filmmaking and editing for the aspiring filmmaker ages 14+.
