What you'll learn in this film studies class:

Pre-production is the key to directing. This class will cover the preparation necessary to direct a film, including both “logistical prep” — from building the credibility to prove you’re capable of executing your vision and making a successful film, to putting together the team that can help you excel — as well as the actual creative process of a director preparing to shoot an independent film.
 
The goal of prep should be to lay the foundation of work to make the actual shooting of the movie as smooth as possible. Production will inevitably be bumpy, so your prep work is necessary to fall back on and utilize to execute your goals and make the movie you want to make, in what will inevitably be stressful and often dire circumstances. 

What You Will Learn
  • An understanding of the logistical and creative preparations when making a film
  • The ins and outs of collaborating with actors
  • How you build credibility for your project
  • The particulars of assembling your team for a successful project
