Welcome to CineMavericks*
THE GLOBAL ONLINE FILM SCHOOL
Created by NYU Film graduate Flavia Casà, collaboration is at the heart of our program.
We are passionate about using filmmaking tools to improve soft skills in young people.
We empower students through storytelling & performance practise, so that they
feel confident in shooting & editing their films on digital devices,
and become strong visual communicators.
SIMPLE TOOLS, LIMITLESS IMAGINATIONS
PERFORMING & SCRIPTWRITING
to improve communication
& develop public speaking
DIRECTING & SHOOTING
to build leadership &
EDITING & SCREENINGS
to practice being constructive
& thriving as a team
the whole filmmaking process under 90 minutes!
Students are introduced to all the steps above, share their ideas and practice on their home devices along the way.
A 4-week intensive where students make their very own short film ! We focus on live-action stories, that learners can easily capture at home using professional techniques.
In this one-hour workshop, students get to go in-depth with their ideas and turn their stories into a script, equipped with plot & character tools to develop this craft further.
WHAT WE DO & HOW WE DO IT
What activities will students participate in?
Our classes are a mix of theoretical discussions,
playful exercises, independent thinking,
& filmmaking practice of course!
What do they need to prep before class?
Please bring a smartphone, tablet, or camera with enough space
to record video. We recommend downloading DaVinci Resolve free version (specifiy Mac or PC) if you don't already use an editing software.
How can parents support their child during the course?
Parents are encouraged to share which soft skill they'd like their child to improve upon & we'll personalise sessions where possible. For the 4-week course, friends & family are invited to watch the students' finished films!
