Oregon3D 2004 Film Camp Announced

Oregon3D Inc., The Academy for Digital Arts & Sciences, has announced its second annual Oregon3D Film Camp. Scheduled for Aug. 15 - 27, 2004 at Oregon3D, students from around the world will partake in the process of creating a short film collectively. Under the guidance of award-winning director, Mike Wellins of Happy Hour Ent. (previously from Will Vinton Studios), students will work step-by-step through the entire film production process and an actual short film for their demo reel.

"Film Camp is designed to go beyond hands-on, and offers burgeoning filmmakers a real world experience from start to finish," said Wellins. "Film Camp students will not only walk away from this experience with a deeper understanding of the filmmaking process, but with legitimate scenes and shots to start or add to their own demo reel, the most important calling card in the production business."

The camp will begin with a location shoot using 35mm film, guide students through digital transferring, editing, 3D special effects production and animation, screen dailies and finish with final film post and output. During the two-week camp, students will have access to Oregon3D's cutting-edge facilities, state-of-the-art systems and industry standard tools such as 3ds max, combustion, Maya and MOTIONBUILDER. In addition to all the production work, students will also star in the film, enabling them to see both sides of the camera.

The camp also features a variety of lectures with industry professionals and arranges tours with some of the professional studios and facilities in Portland. The final day of camp will include a special screening of the created film in the Oregon3D Theatre.

The Film Camp will take place from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at Oregon3D, 735 SW 20th Place, Suite 230, Portland, Oregon. The cost of Film Camp is $1,499 and includes some lunches.
