Guerrilla Filmmaking

Guerrilla Filmmaking

Want to make movies at home? Don’t think you have enough equipment to make it work? Think again! Just ask guerrilla filmmakers like Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi) or Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick (The Blair Witch Project).

Guerrilla Filmmaking teaches students the skills they need to use the tools already at their disposal to make great films! Students will learn the fundamentals of filmmaking as they are guided through concept and script development, pre-production, production and post production by our experienced instructors. They will learn the tricks and tools of guerrilla filmmaking including: how to optimize shooting on their phone, use DIY lighting to light their film, and how to use editing software to put everything together. In addition to in-class exercises, students will have the opportunity to work independently on their films outside of class. Develop your filmmaking skills and learn to think like a Director in the hands-on filmmaking workshop! (Class size 8 – 10)
