Award-Winning Filmmakers Teach Intense Digital Filmmaking Course(July 20, 2001)
The 6-Week Digital Filmmaking Program is an intense project-oriented course of study in which students create a series of professional-quality short digital films; students get a camera on the first day and show a film that week in the state-of-the-art digital facilities; they go on to make four more short films, exploring rich image creation and the professional Hollywood process.
Presented in the final week is a brief introduction to High Definition, the highest-quality digital format, as well as digital media issues such as Web sites, streaming, etc.
The Los Angeles Film School has already become well known for teaming highly trained professionals with new technology, and this program is no exception; Larry Paull, the production designer from "Bladerunner" and "Back to the Future," and Danny Green, the two-time Oscar-nominated editor, are among the instructors this next term.
According to Joe Byron, the school's director of technology, "This program is not just a sampler of digital technologies; it gives the student the chance to live it, do it, be it: that is, to be a filmmaker making films for six intense weeks."
