Production-Screenwriting-Acting on Camera
“Collaboration” and “Story” are the pillars that guide our curriculum, with an emphasis on film-”making”.
Our core labs provide a discipline specific foundation of elements that include:
“A good story well told”: Screenwriting students study fundamentals of storytelling and screenplay structure, gaining an understanding of the most important part of any film: the story. Built on a foundation of practical application and interdisciplinary collaboration, students are exposed to great works of cinema that inform and enrich their final productions.
The production concentration is intended to teach a wide range of practical strategies and tools available for creating film meaing, and to encourage creative approaches to production. Students are instructed in both technical and aesthetic aspects of HD Cinematography through hands-on exercises and short projects. All students learn in Northwestern editing Labs.
An intensive five-week course focused on tailoring performances to the screen, students learn how to analyze character, make strong performance choices, and basic production techniques.
5 week Program Cost $5,400 (includes Room and Board)
