This afternoon, students in session 3 of Relativity Workshops: LA will get a special #InsiderSeries Panel visit from Robbie Brenner, President of Production at Relativity, Andrew Panay, Producer of Wedding Crashers and Earth to Echo, and Craig Borten, Screenwriter ofOscar-winning Dallas Buyers Club!
It’ll be quite the informative afternoon, as students will have the opportunity to ask questions covering a wide variety of subjects in entertainment and filmmaking; from adapting a story concept based on existing historical events, the unique challenges of finding the perfect cast and how to work with a variety of investors and producers to achieve a common, creative goal.
The timing couldn’t be better, as #RelStudents are getting into pre-production mode for their first projects of the session: the Black and White Silent Short. On Friday, the filmmakers will shoot their projects across the wide variety of movie sets at LA Center Studios, putting into practice the writing, cinematography and directing lessons they’ve had throughout this first week. Similarly, the acting students will take their newly acquired techniques to the screen for the short films.
Dance students are gearing up for their Location Solos, which will be their first opportunity to choreograph and perform a full, original piece for camera. They’ll work with a director to optimize their moves for film and create the most cinematic, dynamic and interesting pieces possible. Check out one of the awesome Location Pieces from last session, shot outside in the Park at LACS.
This has already been quite the week at Relativity Workshops, and the creativity/collaboration can only go up from here!
