Crash Course in Filmmaking (aka, Filmmaking 101)

If you'd like to learn the basics of filmmaking, this introductory seminar will help. No frills, no pep talks, no time wasters, just solid information about how to plan and shoot your movie, how to direct the actors, what equipment you'll need and where to get it, how to record audio and set up lights on the set - and how to get funding for your film (including a method of paying for films without spending a cent of your own money, now being used by thousands of independent filmmakers today). Whether you want to have the best movies online, or ace the film festivals, this class will help.


In this enjoyable, fast moving seminar, now in its ninth year, we'll create & film a short independent movie. You'll learn how movies are made (a quick overview of the production process), how to set the key features on and operate a camcorder, how to set up and assemble professional lights to illuminate the set, and more.  At the end of the class, we'll have a finished short film students helped produce, on DVD. If you can, take this class along with Crash Course in Filmmaking; they're meant to complement each other.
