Short Comedy Film Workshop
Make your own short film with the help of French director Thomas Scohy
In the France-Romania Season, the Très Court International Film Festival invites you to participate in the making a short film (maximum 4 minutes). The 9 workshop participants will be separated into 3 teams and will work on 2-3 short films. Starting from one of your short film ideas, together we will structure the scenario, we will choose the narrative style and we will prepare the filming. During filming, you will learn about the different stages and elements of a movie.
A regular in the international competitions of the Tres Court Film Festival, Thomas Scohy is a short film director and more recently, he also does commercials. His short films, „Quatre Mains”, „Z.”, „Wilson”, „Fortune Guru”, „Off”, „Karl” and „Je suis timide” gathered selections and prizes in international festivals. His influences vary from Wes Anderson and the Coen brothers to Tim Burton, Monty Python or Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
