FILM class

.... 2006
The old class page, this is the page for Fall 2001 course (it should be considered as "Fundamentals of Film Directions"). Nevertheless, by the end of the semester you should have a decent tape in your hand to send to grad schools.

There are three areas to focus: scripting, shooting, editing. And while through it learn a little bit about the process itself. Also, the skills that are required to be a filmmaker (team work, understanding the artistic and technical tasks).

In the right table on every page is the link to ONLINE directing class from Yahoo, where the student scripts are posted. Also, there are archives of the Directors Forum, List, you might subscribe to.

Since this is an intro to basics of the filmmaking, I have to cover two different subjects: aesthetics (film language) and the production aspect. Everything in twelve weeks! And this is why this class is introduction ONLY!

[The pages are updated, when I teach this class.]
