Job Posting

The Bryn Mawr Film Institute seeks an instructor for its 2018 Summer Filmmaking Workshop. Over the course of six weeks, the instructor (with the help of an intern) will lead a group of 12 high school students through their collaborative creation of one short film. Under the guidance of the instructor, students will work together to develop a concept, write a script, scout locations, shoot their film (serving as actors, directors, and crew), edit their footage, and create promotional materials. The resulting film will debut on the big screen at BMFI in the winter. The instructor must be knowledgeable about and able to teach a variety of film-related disciplines– writing, acting, directing, filming, and editing. There is also a “camp counselor” component to the job–the instructor must also be able to engage with and guide a dozen precocious teenagers.

The workshop will be held from Monday to Thursday, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, over six weeks spanning late June to early August. The instructor is required to provide all production equipment to be used in the workshop. BMFI will provide the venue, administration, a modest production budget, and computers and editing software (Adobe Premiere Pro).
