The David Lynch Film Department at the Danish Folk School for Development of Consciousness, Rørvig Folkehøjskole, offers a comprehensive curriculum for students interested in scriptwriting, video editing, camera work, and other areas of film and theatre—all taught in the context of Consciousness-Based Education, which promotes the blossoming of inner creativity. New courses are scheduled to begin 16 January 2011.
The course outline describes the curriculum. (Please also see Part I of this article to read more about students' opportunity to gain insight from acclaimed filmmaker David Lynch.)
The film curriculum introduces the student to short films, art films, and scriptwriting. During the course of several workshops additional topics are dealt with such as:
∙ Video technique
∙ Cutting and computer editing (Final Cut)
∙ Camera exercises and cutting
∙ Film history and film analysis
∙ Camera as pen
∙ Film music
∙ Camera technique
The core of our course is an intensive training in scripting a movie. Visual writing, action writing, and writing in images are explored. The course benefits beginning students interested in writing scripts as well as those who are already familiar with them, such as actors, writers, communication professionals, and film buffs in general. . . .
The course contains a theoretical as well as a practical introduction to the basic rules of dramaturgy in the context of film and short-film making. In addition, the student learns to develop and complete his/her own short film manuscript. The course alternates between theory, writing exercises, and film analysis. Writing time is scheduled every day.
What you don't learn other places
At the Folk School for the Development of Consciousness we emphasize the importance of inner creativity.
Inner creative freedom and the ability to be aware of the uniqueness of the moment are among the most useful qualities for an artist. Our school offers outstanding tools—including Consciousness-Based Education and the Transcendental Meditation Programme—to develop these qualities.
Our film course makes great talents greater.
