Workshops

Learn how to become a better filmmaker with our workshops.

The Andyax Film Workshop 2019

This year (2019) from June 17th to June 23rd, we are arranging a film workshop at a cozy university in Norway called Solbakken. We will rent the university and get access to all facilities, invite you over and arrange an unforgettable film workshop with focus on how to become a good filmmaker.

Thomas Leypoldt (Film Composer) and I will be there every day, holding courses, with help from Harald T. Rosenstrøm (Actor/Director) to teach directing and Marius Ytterdal (Sound Designer) to teach sound recording. We will all stay together at the same place and be able to do social stuff as well. Norway is beautiful in June, and a good time to visit Norway for the first time.

Anyone can sign up for the workshop (amateur or professional). All we require is that you have a basic understanding of cameras and basic editing skills. And be quick, as there is only room for 12 people. We want a small group so we can easily interact and get to know each other.

Preliminary Program:

How to tell a story through film. Learning by doing and creating a film. Before the workshop, we will together work on a script that we will produce during the workshop.

Monday 17th: Arrival day. Dinner and social evening.

Tuesday 18th: Courses about storytelling and how to find locations. Practical tasks.

Wednesday 19th: Courses about ways to operate the camera and sound recording. We shoot.

Thursday 20th: Courses about lighting. We film a night-scene.

Friday 21st: Courses about directing and how music strengthen your film. We shoot.

Saturday 22nd: We shoot our last scenes. Farewell dinner.

Sunday 23rd: Farewell after breakfast.

(Please note that there might be changes in the program. We want to have a chat with you before the workshop so you can give input on what you want to learn. Detailed program will follow later.)

Every course day starts with breakfast around 8:15am, lunch around 12:00am, dinner around 4:00pm and a meal during evening, with breaks in between. We will have courses during the day followed by shooting of our film. During the evening we will have social happenings and editing sessions.

If you have food allergies or want to eat vegetarian or vegan food, we will take care of that.

So to sum it up, we want to arrange everything for you. So all you need is to get yourself to Skarnes, the rest will be fixed by us: accommodation, food made by a chef, courses, social events ++.  All of this is 20.000 NOK (approximately 2.000 EUR/ 330 EUR per day) per person.
