In this class, you learn the basic language of directing (ex: shot types, shot sizes, camera lenses, camera movements, mise en scene, etc.). You learn the tools directors can use to convey story and emotions through the visual medium. You learn about story beats, axis, etc. You analyze films and scenes in class to discover how the director's choices convey emotionality, story, and character's thoughts and feelings.
You create 4-5 very short films (1-5 minutes long) using whatever camera you have (iphone is acceptable) to put into practice the theory you are learning in class.
Took an online 10-week course for Feature Film 1. In this class, you learn the basics of story structure, analyze scripts, and start working on a draft of your own screenplay. Very much like a writer's group with weekly assignments and reviewing each other's work.
Great instructor, she was very knowledgable and works in the industry, but obviously the class is filled with people of all skill levels so the feedback from peers wasn't always super useful. It was a lot of "this is really good! I enjoyed reading it!" but not a ton of actionable feedback. Though there were also more advanced writers in there too that did provide better feedback.
