The course is an enriching experience that broadens the students’ perspective on each of the three stages of film production: pre-production, production and post-production, while accounting for diverse cultural landscapes.
At the end of this course, students will be able to produce a short film through practicing the roles and responsibilities of each crew position on set or location and apply the fundamentals of directing actors and communicating effectively with them.
