This is our intermediate production class. Participants must have completed FAVA’s Video Kitchen course, or have proven equivalent experience (at the discretion of FAVA). This class will build upon a basic knowledge of production and editing, in order to take your craft to the next level. Similar to Video Kitchen, you’ll get to take a short film (under 10 minutes) from pre-production through to completion. This curriculum is designed to elevate the technical skills needed to fully realize your vision. With the guidance of instructors, you’ll decide whether to shoot on the ARRI SR3, ARRI III, AC-160, or EPIC. Learn how to level a dolly, the difference between a maffer, cardellini and gator clamp, and the importance of sound design and colour correction. Dramatic, documentary, or experimental projects are welcome and encouraged. All the necessary FAVA gear rentals are included in the class price, excluding film costs if you choose to shoot on film. You couldn’t rent the gear to make your movie for less than the price of this class!
