Learning about Filmmaking and filmmaking technology at Cine Lab

MIAMI – Filmmaking and filmmaking technology has become increasingly accessible to everyone of all ages and demographics due to digital technology. Today we are seeing many people who are utilizing new and improved methods and resources to tell their stories.

Cine Lab is designed to provide each participant with an introduction and understanding of filmmaking as well as roles and careers in video and film production.

Each participant will have the opportunity to help in the creation and execution of a short film. The basic skills that will be taught are: idea exploration, story development, research, writing, camera techniques, sound recording, casting, producing, directing and editing. The end result is that each participant will have a role in creating a short film and will be able have their work screened in the community and a copy of their film to take home.
