Introduction to Filmmaking         

Is film school too expensive and time-consuming? Award-winning filmmaker Lawrence R. Greenberg will take you through the essentials of how to make a film or TV show from beginning to end in this 10-hour course. Learn each step of the process from the script to the film release with a focus on production. This course takes you behind the façade so you can see the specific work that went into the film you are seeing on the screen.

We cover storytelling, process workflow, production lighting, cameras, sound capture, directing actors, and editing. Some of the material is subjective and artistic, other parts are highly technical. You will never see a movie the same way again after this class.
