About this course:

In this capstone course of the Directing Certificate program, you maximize your learning experience and improve your filmmaking skills through the creation of a short film that is screened for an invited audience after the end of the course. Having first developed your projects in the course X 476.23 Developing Your Short Film, you enter the workshop ready to begin pre-production. Through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises, you learn the techniques for translating your script into moving images, as well as the creative and physical requirements for directing a film. Topics include budgeting and production scheduling, casting actors and eliciting the best performance, collaborating with the crew, camera blocking, creating the shot list, visual composition, sound, and editing. By mid-class, you have the opportunity to put in practice all the producing and directorial basics you have learned throughout the program as you shoot and edit your film with guidance from the instructor. Dailies are reviewed and critiqued in class. Running time with credits must not exceed 15 minutes.
