These courses cover all the theory, skills and techniques needed in the stage that comes before shooting a film - to give you all the preparation you need to proceed on to production. This stage involves the screenwriting, film appreciation, producing and film business courses.
These courses put filmmaking equipment in your hands to make your films, letting you polish your skills in the effective use of state-of-the-art filmmaking technology, as well as the techniques used in storytelling.
After you shoot your film, you will need to put it all together! In the Post-Production Classes, you will learn how to use professional software and hardware to Edit your film, Sound Design its soundtrack, and create exciting Visual Effects to aid in your storytelling.
