Basic Filmmaking Class

September 26 - October 29


The Basic Filmmaking Workshop is a series of workshops held over a 8 week period during evenings (Tuesday and Thursday) and some weekends, and provides an intensive introduction to independent filmmaking. All steps and processes are covered from creative conception to the final cut – including the basics of screenwriting, directing, camera operation, lighting, sound and film editing.

During the course, the participants will be exposed to the process of shooting and editing a short film and short video. Each participant will have the opportunity to shoot their own short script and two scripts will be chosen to be shot on the 4K Red One Camera & 4k Sony FS7 Camera.
