Screenwriting & Filmmaking Fundamentals [Michael Shilling]

Spend eight weeks at Hugo House learning the basics of the screenwriter’s art. The class will look at examples from films such as Chinatown, The Thing, and Raising Arizona, and do in-class writing that includes feedback on screenplay ideas.

The following eight weeks will be spent at Northwest Film Forum receiving hands-on training with camera, audio, light, and editing equipment. Students will acquire the skills to independently write and make professional films. All basic film equipment will be provided in class. Students can also bring their own equipment. If you have a laptop and Adobe Premiere Pro CC and would like to use it in class, please email christine@hugohouse.org. Classes at NWFF will meet 6:30 PM-9:30 PM.

Presented in partnership with Northwest Film Forum.
