INCEPTION TO PROJECTION FILMMAKING PROGRAM

Inception to Projection is a 6-week intensive film class open to all ages. Every participant will write and produce a video of their own. Final projects are screened at Arkansas Shorts each January. Production Lecture classes are spent learning filmmaking fundamentals such as directing, producing, casting, cinematography and editing. Participants are expected to work on small crews for one another, giving each filmmaker an opportunity not only to write and direct but also practice production roles such as cinematographer, producer, 1st assistant director, sound recorder or production designer. By the end of the course, each participant will complete their own short film. Inception to Projection projects are archived on our YouTube channel.
