Easter Holidyas Filmworkshop

Who would like to make their own film together with professionals from the film industry?

In cooperation with Jugendhaus Mitte, the association Haus für Film und Medien Stuttgart e.V. offers a film workshop during the Easter holidays for film enthusiasts and fans between the ages of 13 and 17.

With the support of film professionals, you will produce a short film in four days, from brainstorming to shooting and editing. Depending on your interests, you can visit one day, two, three, or every four days.

In the group you will come up with the plot for a film, set up the scenery, shoot the scenes and finally score and edit the material.

The program:

Tuesday 11.04.: Day 1 – Story & Screenplay with Daniel Danzer (screenwriter and film teacher)

What is a story anyway - and how does "film" work? What makes a good film story? What is there to consider? We develop ideas together in the group and write a real script that we will implement in the next few days.

Wednesday 12.04.: Day 2 – Camera & Technique with Sebastian Weitbrecht (cameraman)

Day two is all about camera, light, sound, and how it all comes together on location. Based on the script from day 1, we consider where and how the scenes should be shot. We set up the equipment and check whether everything works as we imagined.

Thursday 13.04.: Day 3 – Acting & Shooting with Sandra Willmann (actress)

First we practice with Sandra Willmann how not to act in front of the camera. Sounds easy, but it is not. Then the shooting begins – with the clapperboard and everything that goes with it, until the scenes are “in the can”.

Friday 14.04.: Day 4 – Editing & Post-Production with Sascha Seidel (film editor)

Sascha Seidel introduces the editing program and what needs to be considered when editing images and sound. Then the participants edit their film themselves. In addition, music has to be found, colors corrected, opening and closing credits created, sounds recorded before the film is finally finished.


Registration is possible until Monday, April 3, 2023 via this form. Please send the completed consent form in advance or bring it with you to the workshop at the latest.
