Three Monday evenings from 6:30 – 9:00
Short filmmaking is a very specific art form to master. In this three-session workshop, you will learn how to write your own short film and the steps you must take after it is written in order to bring your idea from page to screen.
The first two sessions will focus on the writing, from fundamental screenplay structure to how to make your story idea work in short film format, how to develop your characters and their arcs in a succinct amount of time, and how to grab the audience’s attention.
The third session will focus on what to do once you’ve finalized your short film script – how to create a budget, hire crew, the ins and outs of pre-production, production, and post production, and what to do with your short film after you’ve filmed it. Students who take this workshop will leave having written a fully developed short script and will have the tools and knowledge required to turn that script into a short film of their own.
