Direct and Produce a Professional Film

The first day is jumping right into the pre-production process. We will start to learn roles and responsibilities for the first week and how to work like a well-oiled machine on-set. Student’s will then travel off campus for location scouting, learning about how to choose a good location and why. Students round out week one with 3 days of intense, on-set production and shooting. Week two then shifts into the Post Production Studio where Students will be editing their versions of the projects personally with guided help from instructors.

“I enjoyed the entirety of the experience. Every aspect taught me something new, while engaging me in a fun and stimulating way. Perhaps what I enjoyed the most was the variety of film-making aspects that we covered. I liked that I was taught new information that pertained to every area, instead of focusing entirely on one point.”
