Digital Filmmaking Intensive

Digital Filmmaking Intensive is a fast-paced, teamwork-oriented, accelerated course that develops the creative talents of aspiring filmmakers in the essential aspects of today’s digital film technologies. Through practical assignments and hands-on instruction, develop an understanding of the concepts, techniques, technology, and underpinnings of the digital filmmaking process from pre- to postproduction by writing, directing, shooting, and editing your own eight-minute film. This experiential approach has a singular goal: immersion in the business and art of visual storytelling. Faculty members instruct using a specific, progressive course structure that teaches each step of the filmmaking process. This unique experience prepares you for shooting in the real world by upholding industry-standard expectations. The course is conducted in a “workshop” style, in which you collaborate closely with the other participants, faculty members, and guest lecturers, as you actively learn about cinematography, nonlinear editing, lighting, screenwriting, pitching, sound recording, directing, casting, production design, location scouting, and more. Upon successful completion of this intensive course, leave with a solid portfolio film. At the conclusion of the intensive, final films are celebrated in a screening open to cast, crew, friends, and family.
