    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    the script aspect of this course has been invaluable! Honestly, any number of youtube videos, behind the scenes content, interviews and tutorials will not give you the nuts and bolts about script structure and writing that you need to know. Everything from the details of the 3 act structure, to producing a lined script for production has been touched on just in the first semester. My script writing has gone from vague, concept pieces that were unorganized to strong, character-driven pieces that myself and my classmates have been impressed with. I didn't think I was a script writer till I took this course!

    Course highlights:

    Our script analysis goes into such depth I find myself critiquing friend's stories and even my old scripts. I don't know where I would have been without this class. I could seriously see myself going into the industry as a script editor or primary writer for screenplays! We do table reads and class discussions, sometimes there isn't one right answer, but there is a correct frame of thinking! You will write 10 scripts in one semester in this class, easily!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get over perfecting your writing the first time through. This class is designed for you to start with a vomit draft. You need to get good at writing quickly very soon or you will fall behind. There's alot of writing in this class. We're probably producing 5 pages of single-spaced writing every day, and that's not counting the extensive notes I take.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Even if you're learning on your own, this course offers lots of opportunities to work one on one with industry gear and fill in holes in your knowledge you wouldn't always get from online sources! I've been learning filmmaking for 7 years and I learn something new in this class every single day.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the most important aspects of this course were learning the appropriate operation of various grip tools like century stands and sandbags. It sounds basic, but it can go a long way. We worked with sound equipment, form Lav mics to shotgun mics on boom poles. And everyone gets a chance to review and critique our work for everything from story to production value to proper exposure and color rendering!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're passionate about filmmaking you may be tempted to keep working on out-of-class projects. But believe me, you want to set aside all your time for this course. You will produce 7 films in 1 semester, and 5 of them will be BIG productions. All of them are shorts of 1-5min in length, but you have to go through all the steps. Don't sell yourself short, give yourself the space to focus and leave the side projects for christmas break.
