If you are interested in filmmaking as a career or learning about film just as a hobby, the Sedona Arts Center is offering a three week Filmmaking Bootcamp Certificate Program. The course starts August 18 and lasts through August 31, 2018. Classes are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. The cost of the program is $1,800 and all materials are included.
The three-week filmmaking program will give students the opportunity to not only learn the basics of the craft of filmmaking, but also a hands-on opportunity to try crafting film. Teacher Bryan Reinhart was an instructor at the Zaki Gordon Institute for Independent Filmmaking and then at the Sedona Film School. Reinheart teaches documentary filmmaking as well as Final Cut Pro. Reinhart has experience producing documentaries, including the film Hoosiers. Reinhart also started his own television production company and several of his documentaries were aired nationally on public television.
The Filmmaking program will be structured around the production of short films of increasing complexity. Students will work together and be introduced to traditional concepts of shooting a motion picture film. The foundation of knowledge learned will be in line with the use of digital technology, as all scenes will be shot on high definition video cameras.
Classes and hands-on workshops will be held throughout the week in the classroom, with extra time required outside of the classroom for writing, location scouting, casting and editing. For the final week of the course, time will be devoted to editing the student’s production so that a final screening can be held for fellow students and the public.
All students will write, direct, shoot and edit their video using film lighting packages and digital editing software.
The Sedona Arts Center offers a number of art programs within its School of Arts. Classes are divided by Art Workshops, Field Expeditions and Weekly Classes. As a member of the Sedona Arts Center you will receive a discount for classes. Other benefits are given to members, contingent on their type of membership.
