Description:

Ever wondered what a “best boy” or a “grip” does on a movie set? This is a great course to find answers to your questions about the local film industry and film-making in general, including:

  • What are the various departments and jobs listed in the credits and what is their effect on the finished product?
  • Why are the budgets so big? Where does all the money go?
  • Why does a film take so long to make?
  • Why is Vancouver such a desirable place to film?
  • How do they find locations to film?

We will finish with a scene study of a produced show and an interactive exercise in actual film-making, with participants taking the roles of director, actors, etc.
