This workshop will benefit Grade 8-12 Video Tech, Film Studies, and Drama students (minimum 10 and maximum 16).  During each workshop, students will shoot a 4-8 minute short film under the guidance of an experienced team of 3 professionals led by Vancouver writer/director/editor Scott Belyea, who grew up in Grande Prairie, Scooter Corkle from Vancouver (lights and camera), and Michael Bourree from Grande Prairie (sound mixing).  The students will work through preproduction and production by brainstorming script ideas, pitching their ideas, writing the script, auditioning and casting actors from within their group, and learning how to use the camera, lighting gear, and sound gear as they shoot the film under Scott’s direction and the technical guidance of Scooter and Michael.  Scott will then demonstrate how to edit the footage.  The resulting film from each workshop will lead off the typically sold-out screening of the Best of the Fest film package of audience favourites that wraps up the 5th annual Reel Shorts Film Festival on Sunday, May 8th.
