June 3-24, July 8-15
PRODUCTION WORKSHOP is an advanced short filmmaking class for students who have taken AFW’s BASIC CINEMATOGRAPHY class. It will build on previously introduced concepts with advanced readings, lectures and demonstrations. The primary focus of the class is to pre-produce, produce and post-produce finished short films (
in 7 weeks, 7 minute max) to be completed and screened publicly at the end of the term.
Students will be required to provide materials for study and for creation of the films produced in the class. Students who wish to direct and produce a short must submit a first draft script (five printed copies) at the first class. Class time will consist of script readings and critiques, review of pre-production materials, labs for technical issues, labs for design issues, lectures and reviews of cuts of the films.
Students are not required to submit a script and may take the class to work as a producer on a submitted script.
