Students will acquire in this filmmaking program the knowledge and the skills on how to become a movie director. Learning the history of American Cinema, studying the classics and thinking about the stories they need to tell. Our aspiring filmmakers will brainstorm with working professionals on how to formulate them.
One thing is to watch, analyse and learn and another is to do – very early on our students will know what it is like to shoot a short movie that they wrote from scratch. They will acquire the techniques to talk to actors and to get them to deliver powerful performances. The result is that they will learn all aspects of filmmaking in a hands on approach to shooting and will be confident pitching their ideas and understanding what really goes on set and behind the camera.
