Film Production Curriculum

Pre-Production:
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.

Production:
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.
