â€œSo You Want to Make a Movie?â€ touches on all aspects of the filmmaking process, including pre-production, production, post-production and even sales and distribution. I want you to be comfortable with knowing how the whole process of making a film works.
It is a jam-packed day. Course will also include lectures by industry professionals and include optional field trips – details below. Appropriate for short and feature fiction filmmakers – or anyone interested in learning. Documentary makers will benefit from the course too.
