If you have a passion for movies, you might actually try and do some basic film making yourself. Given how easy it is to find video recording devices with modern technology and how cheap it is, anyone who really wants to can be a director of their own video or film. Still, how do you go about learning the craft?
There’s plenty of content to read online about the subject matter, as well as books you can buy from a store or check out from a library. Of course, you can watch videos online about filming, and they might be the most helpful of the free content out there.
However, if you are going to truly learn about the craft, then attending Young Film Academy film making workshops is the best way to go. There’s no substitute for learning from an expert or a professional that’s already established in the field who can teach you not just the fundamentals but also their own personal wisdom, tips, and tricks.
Your local colleges and universities are a good place to look for film making workshops that might be occasionally held in and around your community. Film departments or professors, in particular, might host them on their own, especially if the professor has a background in film making and is looking to boost their profile.
