Introduction to Filmmaking

Introduction to Filmmaking February 3-24

This introductory class provides an overview of what TV, Film & Digital content creation looks and sounds like. Students will leave the class with a good understanding of the different types of media one can create, the process of filmmaking, and a better understanding of all the elements that go into the creation of a film, TV show, web series, podcast, as well as short online videos like those seen on The Second City Network.

We begin broad, talking about film and media from a high vantage point then spend the rest of the term with more specific discussions—writing, improvising and directing, cinematography, sound, music, editing, and special effects.
