Mondays 5.30 - 6.30pm + shoot days

These classes run for an hour on a weekly basis, but also have shoot days where students may be required for up to full-day shoots. Each term we come up with an idea to create and plan a short production. We learn from existing shows and everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the creation, including scriptwriting, storyboarding, pre-production, directing, shooting, sound and acting for screen. You will go through this process and come out the end with a short film, pilot episode or advertisement as a joint collaboration. See this link for a recent short film, https://youtu.be/VkNeYtfaSGM.
