Learn the core elements of directing fiction films – from pre-production to working with actors and more – with an experienced director as your guide. During this eight-week 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.
The course will be held live in our virtual classroom. All sessions are recorded for registered participants who are unable to attend live.
