Meet The Instructors


CLASS 1:  Writing the Short Film Taught by Pilar Alessandra

Sometimes there’s nothing more overwhelming than writing small. That’s why we concentrate on the short film’s unique structure and consider all of the artistic possibilities.

In this workshop, writing instructor Pilar Alessandra will help you:

  1. Find and focus your idea

  2. Explore and structure your story

  3. Craft and rewrite your pages

  4. Edit creatively for your production needs

CLASS 2:  Making the Short Film Taught by Landi Maduro

Once you’ve written it, it’s time to make it. Whether you are shooting your film on your iPhone, DSLR, or an Arri Mini, you need basic skills to ensure you are visually telling an appealing story that will elevate you as a filmmaker. This class will virtually walk you through how to create these elements in your work and help you prepare to direct your film.

In this workshop, filmmaker Landi Maduro will cover:

  1. Camera Angles ( How camera angles reveal information about your characters)

  2. Camera Blocking (How camera movement helps tell your story)

  3. Script Breakdown / Storyboarding

  4. Audio (Capturing clean audio)

  5. Film Festivals (How to select the right film festival for your film)
