Filmmaking Basic

DIRECTING   CINEMATOGRAPHY   EDITING

We teach the art and craft of filmmaking through a dynamic blend of classroom instruction, hands-on film workshops, and immediate directing experience. Students are behind the camera from the first day of class and will learn about and explore the numerous visual, dramatic, and technical challenges that face directors. In addition to writing, producing, directing, and editing their own films, students assist other members of their crews in the roles of director of photography, assistant cameraperson, and gaffer/grip, providing everyone with extensive set experience. Ultimately, through intensive hands-on instruction, our goal is to empower students to tell stories artfully, cinematically, and originally.
