Filmweb_Session 9, Filmmaking for Storytellers EA9
Thomas John Nudi
Session 9: Jul 30-Aug 3

Film as a medium has been a staple in American households since the 1950s—now, almost everyone has the ability to watch and record in our pockets. Everyone’s got a story or two, so everyone can make a film or two, too! Focusing on film as a form for telling a story, this class will culminate in the creation of a short film—narrative or documentary, as chosen by the student—filmed utilizing a smartphone, or other (most likely consumer-grade) recording equipment of their choice (none of which will be provided by the class.) Students will learn the process to submit their films to festivals worldwide, and the class’ work will be screened together at ArtCenter Manatee’s Annual Showcase. Students will also be introduced to films from around the world, and will learn the collaborative process of the form through workshopping their scripts, or concepts
