A short film can be a career starter, a piece of art or just an  entertaining, bite-sized moment on screen. No matter what your end-game,  this class will get you started by helping you get your short film on  the page and on the screen.

CLASS 1:  Writing the Short Film

Sometimes there’s nothing more overwhelming than writing small.  That’s why we concentrate on the short film’s unique structure and  consider all of the artistic possibilities.

In this workshop, writing instructor Pilar Alessandra will help you:

  1. Find and focus your idea
  2. Explore and structure your story
  3. Craft and rewrite your pages
  4. Edit creatively for your production needs

CLASS 2:  Making the Short Film

Once you’ve written it, it’s time to make it. Whether you are  shooting your film on your iPhone, DSLR, or an Arri Mini, you need basic  skills to ensure you are visually telling an appealing story that will  elevate you as a filmmaker. This class will virtually walk you through  how to create these elements in your work and help you prepare to direct  your film.

In this workshop, filmmaker Landi Maduro will cover:

  1. Camera Angles ( How camera angles reveal information about your characters)
  2. Camera Blocking (How camera movement helps tell your story)
  3. Script Breakdown / Storyboarding
  4. Audio (Capturing clean audio)
  5. Film Festivals (How to select the right film festival for your film)
