SOMEBODY STUDIOS / FILM SCHOOL SYROS

FILM SEMINARS IN APRIL/MAY 2018

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION AND SUPPORT OF OUR SEMINAR IN OCTOBER 2017.  WE WILL BE OFFERING MORE COURSES IN APRIL & MAY 2018. WE WILL UPDATE THIS PAGE WITH MORE DETAILS ONCE WE HAVE THEM.

Somebody Studios is working closely with the Greek government and the EU to build a state of the art film studio and international film school on the island of Syros. Our goal is to expand the Greek film industry and attract productions from all over the world to Greece. In doing so we hope to help re-build the Greek economy and make Greece the hub of film production in Europe.

A large part of our plan is the development of infrastructure and to that end we ran the first of many training programs in October 2017 in Syros.

 

The course was offered free to Greek film students and film makers and non-film makers. A limited number of International students  attended but priority was given to Greek students.

 

Steven Bernstein will teach 6 consecutive 8 hour days.

FILM COURSE OVERVIEW

Steven Bernstein will be teaching an introductory film course intended for both novice and more experienced filmmakers.  No previous experience is necessary. All students must be fluent in English.

 

The course will include how to put together an independent film. There will also be an introduction to the complex area of lighting, but which Steven makes super clear even to someone with no technical background. This has been very popular with writers, directors, producers and actors. There will be an overview of the entire production process from the first script idea through to post production.  Steven  believes strongly that once someone has an overview of the entire process all future learning components can be plugged in to this structure and learning and comprehension is much easier. The next component is film analysis. Bernstein looks at a series of films and using the above short programs as a basis breaks them down into their essential elements which makes the abstract concepts far more comprehensible. This unique course will also explore Steven's radical approaches to screenwriting.  He believes that many potential filmmakers create obstacles in their own mind which prevents them from creating a movie they can actually get made. He creates a system that allows people to write an entire screenplay in less than a month that is salable and make-able.

The final part of the program will be Bernstein's vision for his studio in Greece and how he will work closely with Greek filmmakers on expanding the Greek independent film sector and where money and production resources might be found to support Greek film.
