Advanced Industry Production Pipeline:

From there we go to the Post Production process where we will utilize the Adobe Master Suite, also used by David Fincher, Disney and Marvel, which includes Color Correction & Editing in Premiere Pro.

Visual Effects:
Students will learn advanced VFX practices with the same tools that have been used in movies such as Avitar, Pacific Rim & The Martian, learning how to shoot for Post Production on set to how to combine CGI elements in a finalized film.  We will go through the practices of gathering all the location information as well as how to capture light information which is incredibly important for the post production workflow.

New Skills:
This Program is designed to push the already knowledgeable, advanced students in developing their technical skills, artistic vision and personal voice as Filmmakers.  By the end of our 2-Week Advanced Digital Film Camp, students will have created sophisticated, high caliber films that can be submitted in their various college application processes and to local, regional, and national Film Festivals.  Many of our students have continued their education at some of the best film schools in America, incuding:  USC, New York University, Chapman University, Loyola-Marymount, UCLA and Cal Arts to name a few.  Most importantly, our 2-Week Advanced Digital Film Camp will be overflowing with exciting artistic discoveries, the mastery of new cutting edge techniques, as well as the opportunity to meet new friends, collaborate, network and have loads of fun in the Southern California surf and sun.  All of our Advanced Students films will be screened on the last day of the program.
