Summer Course for Youth in Alicante

Summer Course for Youth in Alicante

INTRODUCTION Next, we’re going to talk to you about our summer course for young people in Alicante, conducted exclusively through practical methods with the aim of promoting audiovisual culture among young people and offering them a unique and practical opportunity to learn, educate, and understand the audiovisual product and the work it entails. ABOUT US B.Movie it is a young and innovative company, created with the aim of being part of the world of audiovisual culture and participating in the distribution and preservation of its cultural value. It is a new project that brings together a group of ambitious young filmmakers from various nationalities and backgrounds who share a passion for the seventh art and creative instincts applied in all aspects of audiovisual product creation. The production company also has an audiovisual school for young people, which has been offering courses for 3 years in different areas of the audiovisual world. It is composed of professionals licensed in different fields, with years of experience and dozens of projects completed. JUSTIFICATION WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

  • In today’s digital age, audiovisual platforms represent an essential part of cyberculture. For this reason, we consider it necessary to adapt classical learning patterns.
  • Lack of audiovisual culture in the current context. Due to the speed at which videos reach the audience through the internet, their quality has declined, especially regarding aspects related to planning and editing.
  • Lack of dedication and adaptation to the new working methods of other audiovisual schools.

From B.Movie School, we want to teach you how to master each phase of the seventh art because we know it can be a complex task. Additionally, we believe it’s important to instil the audiovisual culture of the province of Alicante, referring to its historical, social, and cultural character. AUDIENCE WHO ARE THE COURSES AIMED AT? The summer courses are aimed at young talents between 12 and 21 years old, interested in training and understanding the perspective offered by this industry and the fields they can explore. Students do not need to have any previous knowledge or experience in the field. The only requirement is to have passion, curiosity, and a willingness to learn. Our goal is to help all our students understand the structure of teamwork and acquire a general knowledge of the various responsibilities and tasks in the audiovisual field. TIMING WHEN WILL THE COURSES BE HELD? The course will take place during the summer. From July 1st to July 31st, with the option to attend from July 1st to 15th, from July 16th to 30th, or the entire month. The first part of the course will be dedicated to the pre-production process of the short film: scriptwriting, introduction to various elements of photography, sound collection techniques, location selection, artistic conditions, and countless other aspects related to the planning of the short film that will be carried out as the final project. In the second half, the fiction or documentary short film will be recorded and edited, and this final project will be supervised by tutors and teaching professionals throughout the process. METHODOLOGY We offer a working and educational method based on the Learning-by-doing philosophy. The aim is to foster the student’s competencies, develop their creative capacity, and stimulate problem-solving skills. From the very beginning, practical activities are carried out, helping students take the first step into the audiovisual world while learning from themselves throughout the process. We focus all courses on specific projects. This way, we present a continuous learning program where students see their work and learning reflected and realized. Classes will be taught in both English and Spanish, providing a unique opportunity to practice the language while learning and enjoying the experience. CONTENT WHAT WILL WE TEACH IN THE COURSES?

Film School in Alicante – Western!

Film School in Alicante – Western!

The Western marked a new era in the history of cinema, as it has also done at Bmovie, a film school in Alicante.

THE WESTERN

It’s a typical genre of American cinema set in the Old West, born in 1903 with the release of ‘The Great Train Robbery’. That date and film marked the beginning of a new era in the history of cinema, but when we think of Westerns, we think of John Ford, a director who dedicated his life to the genre. That’s why many young talents come to Bmovie to learn and master this world, much like Mr. Ford did in his time. Some important films include:

  • La diligencia, 1939
  • The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, 1962
  • For a Few Dollars More, 1965
  • Río Bravo, 1959

How do we experience the Western at Bmovie? On February 12th, the acting and filmmaking students put on their boots and hats to shoot a commercial in the Wild West! How was it? In the morning, the students were greeted by a cowboy at the school gate. They sat down, and the teachers explained what they would be doing that day. There was a relaxed atmosphere, and as always, jokes were abundant.

The boys went through makeup and wardrobe to become authentic cowboys. With hats in hand and eager to explore the Wild West, Bmovie students faced the greatest duel ever feared by every cowboy—acting in front of the camera! After showcasing their skills with the revolver, the students from the film school in Alicante rode off home. But the cowboy experience doesn’t end there. At some point in this journey, the boys and girls of filmmaking and acting will venture into the adventure of discovering Europe’s largest Western set. If you want to experience this cowboy adventure with us, enroll here. Follow us on our social media: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Tiktok.

Our acting students transformed into zombies to shoot a commercial promoting the summer course, which takes place at the film school in Alicante. To get into character, the first thing they did was go through makeup and wardrobe. Next was lighting, something essential in the studio, and for this, colours like purple and green were used. The ambiance was also enhanced by some paintings from the exhibition displayed in the gallery with dark colours and a gloomy theme, which worked great for filming the summer spot at the film school. This and other spots are showcased on Bmovie’s social media. Along with this commercial for the summer course, other content filmed by our students at the film school can be found on social media. You can follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to stay up-to-date with news, as well as on TikTok to see the content filmed at the school daily, and stay informed about the courses offered and to view other projects we undertake in our classes.
