FILMMAKING

SCRIPT WRITING, MOVIE PRODUCTION, EDITING

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

This action-packed, hands-on class includes a crash course in filmmaking. The class begins with exploring the history of this modern art form from the birth of silent films to the latest blockbuster. Students learn and participate in every aspect of filmmaking, beginning with story conceptualization and finishing with public screenings of their films. They explore idea visualization and learn how to develop basic storylines into narratives and screenplays. The class teaches how to organize an entire film production: assembling a cast, designating film crew responsibilities, lighting and audio techniques, camera operation,  filming scene sequences, editing, and post-production processes.

 

At the end of the course, students' work will be featured at MAPS annual Media Arts Festival at the Pharoplex Theatre in Hamilton, MT.
