When: Tuesday, April 10, 2012 from 7-8:30 PM


How is directing an actor for the camera different than on the stage? What's a good warm up for the actors to get everyone focused and communicating? How do I maintain an actor's performance when I shoot out of sequence? Directing for the Web 101 is a workshop where participants can share best practices, ask questions, and find out from the instructor great ways to get a strong performance from your actors. Ideally suited for beginners and intermediate level directors who are either just starting out or are interested in taking their directing to the next level.

When: Tuesday, April 17, 2012 from 7-8:30 PM


What is focal length vs focal distance? Why is lens speed important? How do I control depth of field? What are some cool tricks that I can use to light a scene with minimal resources? WHY IS ALL OF MY FOOTAGE BLUE???? Cinematography 101 reviews how you can use the technical to articulate the creative. Besides things like 180 degree rule and law of thirds, we talk about some of the mystery buttons on the camera that will help you improve your image as well as your understanding of why things work the way that they do. Ideally suited for beginners and intermediate level cinematographers who are either just starting out or feel that they need a better technical understanding of the mechanics of their camera.

How do I promote my friend’s band? How do I turn myself into the next internet personality? How do I share the fun food that I make in my kitchen with the rest of the world? In class we look at successful examples as well as analyze what it takes to put together electronic press kits, podcasts and vlogs for YouTube. We review such concepts as B-roll, how to avoid talking head footage, and using links to build a network of like-minded people.
