"This class was really helpful and taught me so much."

Whether you are an experienced filmmaker or completely new to the craft, this workshop will challenge your knowledge of the medium and give you the skills you need to make effective and engaging films.

Films are shot on video and edited digitally. Students begin by learning fundamental concepts and the terms we use when making films. We ask the question 'Why tell stories?' and examine some of the basic attributes of storytelling

Students learn to direct, shoot, and edit through hands-on training. You’ll learn how cinematic techniques significantly impact the viewer’s perception. How does lighting change the mood of a scene? What does a dolly zoom tell you about the shot? Mise-en-scène, camera movement, lighting, sound design, and editing all converge to tell your stories on screen.
