Indie Film Making Seminar In Zamboanga

The Mindanao Examiner in association with the Moro Films will conduct a week-long seminar and workshop on film making on February 24.

The workshop is a special hands-on intensive course designed for people who wish to study the art and craft of film making in an intense schedule. This seminar will also help corporate media people engaged in video productions.

For those with little or no film making experience, this workshop offers strong foundation skills through carefully crafted modules aimed at focused learning, hands-on production.

Workshop participants are expected to learn story development, scriptwriting, directing, lighting, editing, sound recording and producing and the opportunity to make fully-realized short films which could be exhibited at film festivals.
The workshop is structured in a way that participants will be able to produce their own 5-minute films towards the end course. To achieve this end, only 25 participants will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The film making workshop shall be conducted by Gutierrez Mangansakan II, an award-winning documentary filmmaker and writer. His first work ‘House under the Crescent Moon’ won Best Documentary at the 15th Gawad CCP para sa Alternatibong Pelikula at Video in 2001.

His documentaries have been screened in various international film festivals in Malaysia, Japan, Singapore, US and Europe.

The workshop is inclusive of seminar venue in hotel in Zamboanga City, lecture kits, workshop IDs, and certificates of training, meal and snacks, projector, white board, sound system, back draft and television.
