In this week-long class we will be making short films from start to finish. The course -- perfect for aspiring writer/directors -- will be a mix of lectures on the technique and theory behind various cinematic specialties (writing, directing, cinematography, editing, sound design, lighting) and hands-on experimentation with these specialties. Students will break up into groups (depending on the size of the class), come up with ideas, and then each group will write, direct, shoot, and edit its own film of up to five minutes. After the course, on a date to be determined, the class will throw its own class film festival.
No experience with screenwriting or film production is required. Those who have taken film classes before will have the opportunity to push their skills further! Students should bring computers and memory cards if they have them, but all other equipment, including cameras, will be provided.
