Story is the heart of film. This course will teach the fundamentals of acting in front of a camera. In addition, we will be practicing the art of cinematography. A hands-on approach will teach students how to set up and operate a camera, understand and control both natural and studio lighting, as well as know the function and use of camera components and accessories. We will look at an introduction to story development and foundational topics such as character, three-act structure, dialogue, theme, and genre. We even teach when and how to break the rules.
