Longleaf Studios would love to host your school group this year on a field trip! This trip is best suited for students in 3rd grade through 12th grade. We will send teachers a script several weeks prior to your field trip day. Teachers will need to assign roles such as actors, directors, camera operators, director of photography, etc. We will send you a list of roles that will need to be filled. Actors are asked to learn his or her lines prior to the field trip date.
When students arrive at Longleaf Studios, they will receive a tour of the facilities and will then go into a pre-production meeting where they will learn some basic film set vocabulary as well as safety protocols. The students will be taking the script from pre-production through post-production. Depending on the length of your visit, some editing instruction may also be taught. One week after the field trip, the video will be posted on YouTube and a DVD will be sent to teachers.
The cost of the field trip is $15 per student. This price also includes lunch, and teachers eat for free. If you are bringing a large group, we will ask that you split the group and two films will be produced so that each student receives adequate amounts of hands-on time. If you are interested in bringing your students to Longleaf Studios, please fill out the form below and we will follow up with you via email.
