Shoot a Chase Scene

Short study - young people

Introduction

Chase scenes are in films across every genre, from Trainspotting’s opening to Paul Greengrass’ Bourne films to Hot Fuzzes fence jumping sequence. They are exciting, stylish and very difficult to do well. This weekend course will give students the skills to create a dynamic chase scene, befitting of any film.

Devised from an original idea created by the group, and under the tutelage of a stunt coordinator and filmmaker, students will work as a professional crew to develop their concept into a fully realised short chase scene.

Throughout the course the students will study famous and iconic examples from film history to help inspire and stimulate their own creativity.

After the course, the footage shot will be sent out to students to allow them to edit in their own spare time. For students without access to editing software the footage will be edited together and sent on, or they can attend our Editing Weekend course, where they will learn the skills required to edit a film and have access to the footage they worked on from this course.
