During this eight-week, Level 1 course you’ll learn how to assemble your crew, work with actors, and translate work from script-to-screen by directing and filming a scene. Sessions include presentation and discussion, interactive exercises, and a case study with an Advisor from the Sundance network. The course concludes with a one-on-one mentoring session focused on your project.
