Have you ever sat through the credits of a film and thought, “Gee it takes a lot of folks to make a movie” or “What do all these people even do”?
Well, we’ve got answers! Join our instructor and film industry professional Rich Hansil for a peek behind the curtain to see how a movie gets made. In this four-part series, you’ll learn what goes on in the different departments of a film production, you’ll see examples from some of your favorite movies, and you’ll leave each session with a small homework assignment to put your new knowledge to the test.
This series is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about filmmaking – whether you’d like to work on a film set yourself someday, or you’re just curious and interested in learning more! If you’re looking for some brain food to fuel your learning, you may order from Abby Singer’s Bistro to be delivered to you in class.
