Introduction to Filmmaking

Introduction to Filmmaking TBA
This workshop is not offered every term. If you would like to be informed when it becomes available, please click here.

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.

$150, 2 hours, 4 weeks
