Command Media Partners with the Tallahassee Film Festival

Corey Crumpacker
June 27, 2017

Command Media launches its pilot partnership with the Tallahassee Film Festival to offer the 2018-19 Youth Filmmaking Bootcamp for Tallahassee high schools. This is a unique educational program which includes online curriculum mapped to state standards, professional feedback on student work by Tallahassee Film Festival staff, in-person workshops with filmmaking professionals, and a chance for high-school students to get their film shown on the big screen at the 2019 Tallahassee Film Festival!

Our program is designed for high school students in Tallahassee and surrounding areas, and our goal is to create an opportunity for students to gain skills in visual literacy, collaboration, and prepare them for CTE certification in Adobe Premiere Pro.

The TFF Filmmaking Bootcamp program can be integrated into your school in a variety of ways, from supplementary curriculum in a technology or art class to an extracurricular film club.

Club or Class Requirements

  • Minimum 5 students participating
  • Access to a computer lab with editing software
  • Provide own gear and equipment (minimum 2 smartphones as camera and sound recorder)
  • Students must be between 13-18 years old
  • Teacher sponsor (not required to be filmmaking expert)

Program Overview

In the Fall semester, students must complete online curriculum portion and gain their Certification of Completion before Winter Break to be eligible to compete in the festival during the Spring semester.

In the Spring semester students with Certificates of Completion for the online curriculum they completed in the Fall will work together – hands on – to write, shoot, edit and produce their short film for the festival, April 5-7, 2019. During the Spring semester, students will submit 3 deliverables (screenplay, rough cut of film and final cut) to the TFF judges who will meet with the students and provide in-person feedback along the way prior to their film festival premiere.
