$585 for Forum Members
Duration: 8 weeks, evenings + one weekend shoot day
Instructor: Vivian Hua, with Jovelle Tomayo, Shann Thomas, Alex Altman, and Champ Ensminger
Dates: Tuesdays, June 11-Aug 06, 6:30-9:30pm (Instruction) & Saturday, July 27th, 9am-2pm (Filming on Location)
This 8-week, entry-level workshop will introduce students to the basic nuts and bolts of narrative filmmaking. Those with little to no experience are encouraged to join. This is not a sit-down, lecture style class; students will collaborate with other classmates and learn by doing. By the end of the course, students will have experience in all aspects of the filmmaking process, from pre-production to post-production.
What students can expect to learn:
Using a pre-written script, the class will begin by teaching pre-production strategies, such as how to breakdown a script and identify practical needs to help make your film a reality.
It will then continue with camera, lighting and sound instruction that emphasizes the practical through in-class workshops.
Students will shoot a short in-class scene with actors. On-set responsibilities will be rotated so each student gets a chance to perform different roles as director, cinematographer, gaffer, grip, sound mixer, and boom operator.
Near the end of the 8-week course, each student will edit their scene with in-class assistance and present their version to the class.
For this next class, well be producing an original short screenplay. The short will include actors and dialog so that students can practice editing a narrative scene.
