Class Info

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is a motion picture worth? Potentially a lot more… if the film is any good, that is. What makes a film good is not how much you spend on expensive equipment, but how much you invest in the whole process, from writing to shooting, to how you present your video online.

Dabblers will learn about film video-making from start to finish, including:

-Writing and storyboarding your video
-Casting
-Shooting
-Lighting
-Audio
-Cool tricks to make your video look professional
-How to distribute online

Whether you are interested in the art of film-making, or are already knee deep in DIY video-making, this class will give you the inside scoop on how to translate your vision into a well-made motion picture.

    Guy shared a lot of practical information in a humorous way. The time went by very fast. Highly recommended!
