Here at Celtx, we often enthuse over the fact technology has rapidly accelerated the accessibility of filmmaking. It’s an invigorating reality that harkens back to our origins as a company: we’re all about figuring out new ways to demystify the production process and making it easy for anybody to take the first steps towards making their creative vision a reality.
So, when Jonah & Joel Guelzo approached us with their novel proposal for using a polished, intriguing dramatic webseries as a medium for teaching aspiring filmmakers some technique, theory, and practical advice – for free – it wasn’t a difficult decision to throw in our hat as a sponsor.
Project Volare’s concept is unique: a six-part webseries is released over the course of a six-week season. After each episode, an accompanying video provides behind-the-scenes insight into how the webseries is being produced, along with best-practices workshops with experts on a variety of subjects: writing, acting, directing, sound recording, and more.
Admission to Project Volare is open to anyone, and participation is free. Students are able to interact directly with the filmmakers and gain a chance to win valuable filmmaking assets on a weekly basis from a slew of industry leading sponsors (including some free one-year subscriptions to a fully-featured Celtx Studio!).
