RFC starts workshop for emerging filmmakers

The Royal Film Commission (RFC) in collaboration with the University of Southern California (USC) announced March 11 the launch of the sound design workshop at Al-Hussein Cultural Center, which will run from March 11 to March 20.

The workshop will provide intensive training for participants aiming to learn the latest sound recording techniques and sound design with a team of instructors from USC School of Cinema-Television, one of the world’s oldest film schools.

The Workshop will be held daily from 10am to 6pm, with occasional evening work. Throughout the workshop participants will work in pairs on two projects focusing on the skills of collecting sounds and the in-depth craft of sound design. This workshop is part of the RFC’s commitment to building technical capacities of talented Jordanians, keeping them updated with the latest techniques in the industry, and providing them with specialized skills for digital filmmaking jobs.

RFC called on those who are interested in taking part in the workshop to apply only if they can commit to attending on a full time basis throughout the dates of the workshop. Participants should have prior experience in digital video production and Avid Xpress pro. The workshop conducted by the visiting team of USC instructors started with 14 participants. According to RFC, this workshop will mentor talented emerging filmmakers on the craft of storytelling through sound. They will learn the art of sound design and recording techniques—all hands on with field and class work.

RFC is offering the filmmakers access to learning with some of the best in the world, right here in Jordan, drawing on their local resources and content. It offers international standards of learning in Jordan, all the while keeping an eye on the skills needed in the immediate job market. The School of Cinema-Television at USC was founded in 1929. Some of the world’s most talented writers, directors, producers, animators, executives and scholars have flocked to the USC School of Cinema-Television. (Their names are the stuff of legend: Howard, Lucas, Milius, Wells and Zemeckis; their creations weave the fabric of the American culture: A Beautiful Mind, Star Wars, Apocalypse Now, The West Wing and Forrest Gump.)

The Royal Film Commission of Jordan was established in July 2003 with a mandate to develop and promote an internationally competitive Jordanian audio-visual industry through the advancement of human, technical and financial capacity in addition to providing comprehensive production support services to local, regional and international productions.

The Royal Film Commission is a financially and administratively autonomous Jordanian government body led by a board of Commissioners chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein. The RFC believes that filmmaking is a form of creative expression that transcends borders promoting cross-cultural understanding through the sharing of stories, thoughts and ideas. Jordan is a staunch supporter of Intellectual Property Rights.
