Media Educator-Lucy Eagleson

Born and raised in Escondido, California, Lucy spent about 3 years living and volunteering at an orphanage in Bosnia-Herzegovina. It was during that time that she found herself in the midst of unique stories as she came to know the wise individuals behind those journeys. That wisdom, paired with a deep appreciation for the power of the image, inspired Lucy to pursue a career in filmmaking. Lucy obtained her Master of Fine Arts in Film and TV Production from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, and she continues to produce and direct short documentary films. She is honored to bring her passions together by seeking to instill in young people the importance of telling their stories, while providing them the skills necessary to create digital content.

Camp description: In this two-day workshop, students will dive right into filmmaking and learn how to take their idea from the page to the screen! Aspiring storytellers will have the chance to learn about screenwriting, acting, cinematography, sound, and editing. After they learn about basic story structure and character arc, they will create storyboards and head straight into production on their film. Once they capture all the pieces they need to tell their story, they will picture and sound edit their film. After their masterpiece is complete, it will be screened at LCFF on Saturday, September 12, 2015.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Students will learn and apply filmmaking skills: Pre-​‐production (writing, storyboarding), production (cinematography, sound, lighting, acting, directing), post-​‐production (picture and sound editing) (cinematography, sound, lighting, acting, directing), post-​‐production (picture and sound editing)
  • Students will understand narrative structure and character arc
  • Students will produce a short narrative film that is approximately 3 minutes in length
  • Students will gain the experience of working collaboratively with their peers on a creative project and presenting to an audience at LCFF
  • The wider community will have the opportunity to see the cinematic vision of their youth and support their interests in creating digital media content

Workshop Itinerary:

  • Students will learn the core concepts of narrative filmmaking through selected short films. After discussing the films, they will actively engage in applying the concept through various stages of pre-​‐ production, production, and post-​‐production.
  • The students will receive a list of locations, props, and dialogue that will serve as creative parameters for the script they write as a “bulletin point plot.” They will pre-​‐ visualize their script by creating photo storyboards that will serve as their roadmap throughout production.
  • After shooting and editing their short film, students will have the opportunity to see it on the big screen at LCFF.
