The Evening Workshop is the ideal program for individuals who must balance filmmaking with other responsibilities. Designed for students with little or no filmmaking experience, the course meets three to four evenings a week from 7:00-9:30pm in New York City and 7:15-9:45pm in Los Angeles. Films are shot on the weekends. In addition, some classes may be held on Saturdays.
The Evening Workshop gives students the instruction they need while allowing them to fulfill other obligations during the day throughout the workweek. All classes are geared toward providing the building blocks needed to create a film. The Evening Workshop is comprised of approximately 100 hours of class time and production.
The first six weeks are devoted to the study of four primary elements of filmmaking: writing, directing, cinematography, and editing. To apply the concepts they learn in class, students write, produce, direct, and edit two short film exercises, using HD cameras (Canon 5D), Lowel lighting packages, and digital editing software.
In the second six weeks, each student writes, directs, shoots, and edits a short film of up to ten minutes with multiple tracks of sound including ambience, sound effects, and voiceover.
Throughout the Evening Workshop, students meet with instructors for one-on-one consultation.
The course culminates in a screening of the students’ final films, which is open to cast, crew, family, and friends. Upon the successful completion of the course, students take home a digital master copy of all their projects and receive a New York Film Academy certificate.
The Evening Workshop draws an eclectic group of people, from young working professionals, to international students, to people well-established in busy careers. All must be highly motivated in order to balance the workshop requirements with their daytime commitments.
Students form crews of three or four people to complete each film project. When their colleagues direct, students rotate among the key crew positions of director of photography, assistant camera, and gaffer/grip.
