Do you have an idea for a film, but don't know where to start? In this class, we'll explore your ideas, develop character and story, and turn your spark of inspiration into a short film script. From there, we'll learn the ins and outs of preparing to shoot your film—from revising your script, to finding and working with actors, to putting together a team and communicating your vision. You'll walk away from this course with all the tools you need to shoot your movie—making it will be up to you.
