The Art of Film Production: the Pillow Fort Approach

Class postponed. Please check back for updates.


Create your own rules and your own world! Just like building a fort with pillows, blankets, and cardboard boxes, we’ll explore the development of concepts, storyboard creation, style guide, and on camera interpretation using accessible tools and creative problem solving.
