2020 Spring Basic Filmmaking Class

March 12 - May 3


The Basic Filmmaking Workshop is a series of workshops held over a 3 month period during evenings 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, producing, camera operation, lighting, sound and editing. During the course, the participants will be exposed to the process of shooting and editing a short film and short video.

Deadline: March 9, 2020

In the class, students will get the opportunity to write their own short 3 – 5 minute screenplay. Two to four screenplays will be chosen to be filmed by the class during the film shoot classes happening on a Saturday and Sunday listed below in the class schedule.
