Starts July 18
Monday–Friday, July 18–22, 12–4 pm
Anyone can pick up a camera and press record, but what distinguishes a home video from a film? In this weeklong story lab, you’ll learn the elements of narrative filmmaking while creating an original narrative film of your own. From script writing and shot planning, to shooting and editing, you’ll be a part of every step of a film’s production, experiencing firsthand the discipline of storytelling and gaining invaluable perspective that will give you an edge in the world at large.
