Sam’s Film Intensive

with Sam Friedman

This two week film intensive will give students hands-on training and skills needed to produce their own short films.  Students will write their own screenplays, develop shot lists, and shoot and edit a short piece of work.  Techniques regarding story structure, cinematography, directing actors, and editing tips and tricks will be interspersed throughout the process.  iPhone filmmaking will also be focused on, allowing students to continue creating thought-provoking and personal films without the use of an expensive camera.  By the end, students will have a solid piece of work to start a portfolio!
