9am–4pm daily

All Materials Included / All Levels



This three-week certificate program provides students who are interested in filmmaking or even contemplating a commitment to filmmaking as a career the opportunity to learn the basics of the craft in a short immersive format. The course is designed as a boot-camp/hands-on approach to filmmaking.

The program is structured around the production of short films of increasing complexity that students work on together. Students will be introduced to the traditional concepts of shooting a motion picture film and will apply this foundation of knowledge to contemporary practices of shooting with digital technology. All projects will be shot on high definition digital video cameras.

Classes and hands-on workshops are held throughout the week and some weekends are reserved for additional classes or shooting. Time will be required outside of class for writing, location scouting, casting, and editing. The third week is devoted to editing the productions, culminating in the final screening for fellow students and the public.

Students write, direct, shoot and edit using high-def digital video, film lighting packages, and digital editing software. Classes in directing, writing, editing, cinematography, and production cover the creative and technical demands of telling a story with moving images. A final screening will be open to the public, creating a meaningful deadline for production and editing.


TUITION: $1800.00
