Why This Course?

Learn from a Filmmaker and a educator about what is involved in the pre-production stages of Filmmaking.These basics have already been tested in a classroom environment and we have gone to create and produce amazing short films. We have found out students at the end of the semester love this bootcamp method or hate it. Based on their experiences they find career paths which they are are more interested in . Students who love the energy,chaos and the limited creativity of being on shoe string budgets have gone on to crowd fund and produce their next short.

This is a step by step guide as to why do we need certain production documents?Why do we have to limit our locations and the characters? I have put together the first five weeks of work that is required for producing and directing a short film. This course will give you a weekly breakdown of the work that a student filmmaker absolutely needs to do before they film.
