Adventures in Filmmaking

Lights, camera, action!

Do you see yourself writing a movie script or working on a movie set? In this class, we will introduce basic filmmaking on cellphones. Class topics include story development and writing a short script; technical instruction with the cellphone camera, cellphone tripod and editing software; and shooting and editing your film.

We will balance between in-classroom instruction and hands-on production experience. By the end of this adventure, you will write a script, direct filming and edit the film!
