Make Your Movie Now! Class
Mondays from 7 pm to 10 pm

The goal of this class is to prepare the student with the knowledge and the tools that they need to easily write, produce and direct their very own short film. This 8-week course will focus on script writing and development, the basics of film production and editing, and finding your directing style so that by the end of the course you will be set up to shoot and edit your very own short film script. Scripts will be written and developed during the first few weeks of the class with the class with emphasis on writing for the materials that the student has at their disposal. The films will be screened at The Institution Theater at the completion of the class.

This class is limited to 8 students.
