Each session, the students create eight films while learning: camera, lights (soft and hard), sound (shotgun and wireless), green screen, practical effects, special effects, stop-motion, and documentary & narrative storytelling.

Students work with professional equipment with an emphasis on how to duplicate these shots, effects, and films at home.
Finally, at the end of the last class, we encourage friends and family to come and see the films we have created.
Note: For returning students who might have done some of these effects before, we make a special effort to challenge them further.
