Making a film isn’t as hard as you think! Many people assume that filmmaking requires fancy equipment and expensive software, but for this class all you need is a phone with a camera and a computer (preferred), iPad, or iPhone that can run iMovie (a free editing software). No experience necessary.
During this class, you will create a short film of 2-5 minutes. Starting at the very basics of what makes a good story, we will work our way through screenwriting, shooting, and editing. At the end, if time allows, there will also be a wrap party where you show off all your hard work! After taking this class, in addition to producing a short film, you will come away with the knowledge and materials to continue creating short films on your own, whenever you want.
Ayla is a teen that has always enjoyed watching movies, but she really fell in love with filmmaking during a week-long internship in 8th grade. Since then, she has taken five other film classes through school, the New York Film Academy, and the School of Creative and Performing Arts (SOCAPA), and produced over ten short films and documentaries.
