This course is a hands-on exploration of the key elements of film making, from the screenplay to the big screen. Over the course of three weeks, students will write their own short films and divide up into groups to produce those selected by the instructor. Films will be shot on DSLR cameras and edited in Final Cut Pro X. Each project will be structured like a professional film crew, with the opportunity for students to learn various roles on set, including director, cinematographer, editor, 1st AD, and acting. Their final projects will screen in a Summer Institutes Film Festival where their fellow students are invited to enjoy their work.
