Overview

Sarah Lawrence College and the International Film Institute of New York are happy to offer a unique opportunity to learn the art of filmmaking in an in-depth, supportive, and intimate program.

Gain hands-on experience and instruction in all aspects of filmmaking, focusing on four core elements: Writing for the screen, Directing, Production, Post-production.

Lectures feature hands-on camera work, augmented by special guest speakers and behind-the-scenes visits to Manhattan production studios and editing facilities. After you shoot three film exercises focused on different filmmaking techniques, you’re ready to write, direct, produce, shoot, and edit your own short video. You choose the format: narrative, documentary, or experimental. You may choose to stick to a script with actors, costumes, and a controlled set, or you may approach your shoot with the spirit of improvisation. The final product is your completed short—to which you own the exclusive rights—ready for your professional portfolio, graduate school application, or Web distribution.
