ONSITE: Introduction to Filmmaking

Learn how to compose, move, and sequence shots to visually deliver information and make a compelling short film. Concepts and theories related to cinematography and editing will be introduced. Students will edit their films using Adobe Premiere.

Special Notes

  • Students are required to bring notebooks or note-taking devices. They will supply their own SD cards (atleast 32GB) and their digital cameras for shooting. Students can use phones with video-recording abilities or any digital cameras (DSLR/mirrorless). 1TB external hard drive for editing is preferred but not required (If you would like to keep making films and videos in the future, it will be good to have a hard drive from the beginning). Teacher will cover the basic digital camera manual operation (such as aperture triangle) so it would be helpful for those who want to learn from the very beginning. Please also bring a tripod.

    Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
