Video production is a twenty-first century skill that is valuable for all students, regardless of career interest. With cameras on every phone and editing software cheaper than ever before, all career paths require individuals who can express themselves through video. Our Filmmaking and Directing course is a two-week program targeted at providing students the fundamental filmmaking skills which will allow a student to craft an effective video, and then the directing skills needed to effectively lead and collaborate with others. In the first week, students will learn how to use industry-standard cameras and software to master elements of cinematography, lighting, and editing through a variety of short film projects. In the second week, the students will prove their mastery by teaching and directing students in our Filmmaking Studio program on how to use the equipment and how to compose effective films. On Friday of each week, families are welcome to join us as we screen the films from the week.

Austin Prep students who successfully complete the two weeks are then exempt from the prerequisite to take an introductory Filmmaking course in the 2019-20 school year, and may directly enroll in the more advanced Filmmaking 2 course.

If students are unable to participate in both weeks of the Filmmaking and Directing course, they may still participate in the first week, learning how to use industry-standard cameras and software to master elements of cinematography, lighting, and editing through a variety of short film projects. Families may join us on the Friday of the week for a screening!

Hollywood dreams start here! Our Filmmaking Studio is the perfect place for a student starting her/his video production journey, or for a more experienced moviemaker to refine and practice skills with professional equipment and an experienced staff. Students learn from industry experts to write, produce, edit and publish their own short films, engaging hands-on throughout the entire production process. Projects include small skits, news reports, and music videos as filmmakers learn screenwriting, lighting, cinematography, directing, graphic design, audio mixing, editing, color correcting, and special effects. Students unlock their creativity and immerse themselves in exciting, self-driven projects. On the final day, families are welcome to join the students as we screen the videos produced during the week.
