Building on students existing knowledge of the basic principles of filmmaking in this course students hit the ground running, beginning with a rapid short narrative project that they complete during the first day of the course. Students then learn about title design and basic visual effects or VFX with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects, before launching into their second short film project.
