Because film is ultimately a visual medium, its visual components are like another actor, creating mood and eliciting an emotional reaction from the audience. In a world where budgets are growing forever tighter, how the future filmmaker perceives the aesthetic of his/her story should be an essential factor.

Our courses emphasize visualization in filmmaking as the nucleus of that emotion. We unfold how subtle design elements - when constructed together - intensifies cinematic language.

Though our sessions are lecture-based, the atmosphere is far from sleepy. We are interactive and discussion oriented, and offer refreshments during our time together.

We currently offer 2 courses:

• Art Direction: Part I

• Art Direction: Part II
