Sam wants to be more popular at school, but doesn't know how. When they find a hat on the way to school, all that changes. Imagine everything you wish for suddenly coming true… Though the old saying "be careful what you wish for"
Sam’s friends start to use their magic hat, and things get very interesting. Sam saves their friends and cements themselves into the popular group.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
How is it even possible to make a film in only three days? Our expert coaches will lead students through the process they've followed countless times. Students will wear multiple hats both in front of an behind the camera to bring this project to fruition.
Having been told before the workshop which character you will be playing, the morning of day one is spent meeting your creative film making team and then building your character. You will then learn about the plot points and begin to rehearse your scenes. If you get some creative flow happening you may get the first shot in the can.
By day two we have started to rehearse scenes and get filming! You will be on set for most the day, eating lunch on the run between takes. There won't be much rest today as the rule with fast film making is get the shot before we run out of time. You will be impressed with yourself and your team to creatively problem solve, and come up with cool ways to tell your story.
The rubber really meets the road as you are racing against the clock to finish the film. There be sweat and laughter as everyone pulls together to make the film complete. Once the filming is done, we send off the footage for professional editing and sound design. Then, eight weeks later, you will be sent a link to your original film 'The Magic Hat'. Starring you!
