Spike, I'm on Your A--!
OK family and friends. I know you’ve heard me go on and on about how I want to make a film, write a script, etc. (I have written some short screenplays, but quite frankly, I’ve got a long way to go.)
Well, I’ve found a fabulous resource right here in Charlotte, N.C. that will help me along with this dream. It’s called the Light Factory and dag nabbit, if they don’t offer classes in Filmmaking, Film Editing, Digital Photography, and more. I’m, oh so excited! Now all I have to do is come up with the money to take these classes. I’m sure God will provide! Praise God.
Here’s a description of the first class that I plan to take:
Making a Short Film: From Concept to Cutting Room
Course Dates: TBD
Times: 6-9 p.m.
Instructor: Nate Fitzgerald
Costs: $195/members, $250/non-members
(I’d better join so I can get that $55 off the cost of the class.)
Always thought you had a great idea for a movie? (Yeah!) This class will provide you with the basic technical concepts of movie-making using digital video cameras. We’ll touch on the basics of scriptwriting, shooting, and even editing (Alleluia!). In groups or individually, students will write their own short scripts, then plan and shoot them (alright now!).
Afterward, you will learn how to log and capture your footage into The Light Factory's Final Cut Pro editing systems. We’ll teach you how to splice, manipulate, rearrange, layer (Man, I hope this isn’t too complicated), and add sound like the pros (Oh my goodness, this is what I’ve been dreaming of). In the end, you’ll have your own cohesive short film. Class size is limited (I’d better register fast yall!).
