Turkey calls for Lights, Camera, Action:

Travel with SAE Dubai this summer for our international film camp!

Filmmaking is a process that encourages a creative platform for a group of individuals to come together as a team to turn script into screen. The filmmaking journey paves the way for a number of skills to be practiced including storytelling, character development, camera work, editing and so much more, allowing creative juices to flow. It also encourages  team work, collaboration, time management and more soft skills to be utilized.

The idea of the international film camp is for young aspiring filmmakers and actors to collaborate, shoot a film, make long lasting memories, get hands-on experience, all while making new friends. The camp will also provide more holistic approaches such as wellness and well-being sessions and team building exercises.

Students will learn the art of filmmaking in Istanbul, a prime location in the eyes of Turkish and foreign film makers. A plethora of films, including the famous James Bond movie saga, Taken 2 and contemporary Turkish TV shows, have been shot in around the streets of Istanbul, making Turkey an ideal location to learn cinema production. If your lucky, you may even chance upon a live TV or film production set!


Find the Spielberg in you while you learn:

  • Narrative and character building – storytelling techniques, understanding genres, character, and location development.
  • Scriptwriting – How to turn an idea into script format, techniques on using CELTX software
  • Pre-production works – Script breakdown, shooting schedules, crew roles, auditions, camera shot lists
  • Production works – Making the film
  • Post-production – how to do simple edits, creating narrative structures and easy use of techniques.
