If you have a burning desire to become a filmmaker, then making a short film is the ideal way to take that first significant step on the filmmaking ladder. Not only will the production of a short film introduce you to every key aspect of the filmmaking process, but it can also provide you with the ultimate ‘calling card’ to showcase your talents.
This 2-day introductory filmmaking course which is aimed at beginners, strips away the mystique of film production and shows that anyone with drive and passion can write, direct & produce a short film. It is specifically geared towards those who no longer want to just talk about making a film, but actually want to get down to the nitty-gritty of actually making a film.
