NEW Daniels Architecture & Film Bootcamp - Summer 2021

Explore the world around you through the lens of architecture and film making. The solitude of moving through a narrow passage, the joy of arriving at a discovered garden, the abstraction of a new creating an exciting new world. These are the moments we seek to craft in our interpretations of the built environment.

WHO?
This program is designed for late high school (grades 11 and 12) and undergraduate students of all disciplines who are interested in architecture (ages 16+). This program is open to all participants, including English-speaking international students.

WHAT & WHY?
The Daniels Faculty is delighted to collaborate with faculty member, architect and production designer, Jay Pooley in creating this 4-week intensive bootcamp divided into single-week courses. Students can take 1, 2, 3 or 4 courses. Jay’s unique background was recently featured in U of T News. Participants will be guided from conception to production of a film using architecture as an integral part of the story. Participants will leave the program with a creative project that could be included in a portfolio.

The program will also include:

  • One-on-one instruction and feedback
  • Workshops in representation and documentation architecture
  • Film screenings themed around architecture
  • Virtual field trips to local production facilities
  • Peer reviews where participants present their work to practicing architects and other design professionals
  • Lectures by practicing architects and faculty.

WHERE?
This program will be delivered online through a variety of platforms including Quercus (the University of Toronto’s learning management system), Zoom web conferencing, Microsoft Teams, and other related software. Students will have access to programs used in our undergraduate program delivery. Participants will also receive access to the Adobe Creative Cloud during the program.

WHEN?
The Daniels Architecture & Film Bootcamp is 4-week program that will be offered twice during the summer. The 4-week program is made up of four individual 1-week courses. The courses are listed below and can be taken independently and require no previous experience. For the best experience, it is strongly recommended that students take the courses sequentially. However, this is not a requirement.

HOW?
Each week, participants will be taught all the necessary skills to develop architectural artifacts and create a film. Here’s a detailed look at what each week of the program includes:

Week 1 – The Story & The Object
Participants will document the experience of an existing space through a short film. This can be your neighborhood, a building or a singular room. Select an object within this space that helps to describe its character. Document the object as built and drawn artifacts. Introductory skills in filmmaking, drawing and model making will be taught.

Week 2 - The World & The Abstract
Next, participants will write a short narrative for this world reimagined by adding or removing a spatially defining critical truth such as symmetry or gravity. They will expand their previous drawing and model making skills to describe the relationship of a character to this new reality.

*For students who have completed Week 1 of the program, you will continue working inside of your documented world. For students who are just joining the program, you will be starting by abstracting an existing world.

Week 3 – The Story & The Abstract
Participants will document the experience of an abstract world through a short film supplemented through the creation of a series of architectural documentation. Expanded skills in filmmaking, drawing and model making will be taught.

*For students who have completed Week 2 of the program, you will continue working inside of your imagined world. For students who are just joining the program, you will be working within the world of an existing film.

Week 4 – The World & The Character
Expand the narrative of your world by imagining a new place currently outside of the story. It can be a moment from a building, a collection of buildings placed in an adjacent environment or completely out of the world. Document the relationship of your addition through a short film that explores the world the lens of a new character. Expanded skills in filmmaking, drawing and model making will be taught.

*For students who have completed Week 2 or 3 of the program, you will continue working inside of your imagined world. For students who are just joining the program, you will be working within the world of an existing film.
