This intensive 3½-day workshop is designed to introduce amateurs to both film appreciation and the actual techniques of film making.
The 3½-day workshop is a unique opportunity for high school students (freshman through seniors), college students, teachers, and all adults interested in film making. The participants will be shown a variety of films that will showcase the elements of film making discussed and applied throughout the course. Students of the workshop will be introduced to all aspects of the film making process as they produce their own short film during the class. From sound design to lighting, from camera operation to story-boards, participants will gain valuable practical experience in the art of film making.
