Part I - Personal Storytelling
October 10 - December 15
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays, 4-7pm
In the first semester, Fellows will study the foundational elements of filmmaking using a 3-stage production cycle. Fellows will gain hands on experience in all aspects of script writing, production, and video editing, and will complete an independent, personal film by the end of the semester.
Part II: Team Capstones
January 30 - May 9
Tuesday and Wednesday OR Thursday, 4-7pm
In the second semester, Fellows will dive deeper into intermediate filmmaking techniques and will collaborate with other Fellows to produce a team project by the end of the semester. During the second semester, Fellows only attend in-person sessions twice per week, as they are expected to spend additional time filming projects outside of class time. Culminating projects will screen at a final symposium event. Second semester includes additional career readiness support and work-based learning opportunities.
All classes are held in person at The Ninth Street Independent Film Center:
145 9th Street, San Francisco.
