PROJECT / COMPETITION

You and your peers will be divided into groups, with each of you responsible for a different role in creating your budding blockbuster. In creating each short film, you’ll learn the techniques and methods of your chosen course and working with your group to take it from storyboard to studio to screen.

Participate in lectures from celebrity writers, directors and actors. Enjoy visits to the Screen Actors Guild, Red Carpet movie premieres, tv tapings and Studio Tours. You’ll also gain access to permanent shooting sets – normally reserved for the professionals – including the backlot of  Warner Brothers Studio, plus film and television sound stages, as well as advanced editing technology like Avid and Final Cut Pro Suites. When it’s time for the big premiere, you’ll showcase your final project in a high-definition theater!

Cinematography

Create a visual mood using a wide array of industry-standard lighting and camera equipment with individualized guidance from experienced professional Hollywood cinematographers. Gain advanced knowledge in lighting and camera essentials to better learn how to “Write with Light”. You’ll experience hands-on training and learn the inner workings of a wide array of cameras from 16mm to 35mm cameras, to the digital Alexa and Red cameras used on today’s Hollywood feature films. You will even create and be the Director of Cinematography on a series of challenging mini-scenes that tell a story without the need for dialogue.
