Have you ever wanted to show Hollywood how you would make movies? Here's your chance. Our most popular course, the G.I.F.T.S. drama media intensive program takes you through each step necessary to produce an original 3-5 minute piece. Working in a group of 3-4, you'll start the course with a media literacy workshop, brainstorming and a scriptwriting session, where you'll learn how to format a script.
Once your script is ready, you'll learn the importance of storyboarding each shot and compiling a shot list, to ensure you are very prepared for the most important stage: the shoot. During the shoot, you have the opportunity to use the camera, direct, record sound and sometimes, act; acquiring both technical and creative skills. Once your production is "in the can," you move on to editing. Using G.I.F.T.S.' digital non-linear editing systems, you'll learn how to fit your scenes and sounds together in ways that you never thought possible.
Adult students may choose to continue their education in Dramatic Video production after completing the one week Media Intensive Program by enrolling in the two week Directors Intensive Program, taught by mentors from within the film industry.
Our mentors can point you in the right direction if you want to break into film and television. Most of our students end up in the industry. Many of our younger students return year after year for our spring and summer film camps.
