Video Kitchen

September 18 - December 11


This is our introductory class. It is a prerequisite to Main Course. Video Kitchen provides a creative place to explore and express your ideas visually. Ingredients you’ll mix together include: screenwriting, budgeting, scheduling, casting, camera technique, shot lists, storyboards, lighting, sound and editing. You’ll have lots of opportunities to get your hands dirty as you cook up your own 4-6 minute short film. Dramatic, documentary or experimental projects are encouraged. All the necessary FAVA gear rentals are included in the class price – you couldn’t rent the gear to make your movie for less than the price of the whole class!

Please note that shooting and editing your film will take place outside of class time.
