First you start with Basic Production which teaches 10 point lighting for one or two people, audio, character lines of motion and composition. Should you have your actors move from the left side of the frame to the right? Should you cut from a wide shot to a medium shot, or from a wide shot to another shot. What color wardrobe attracts the audiences eye and what distracts? Basic production answers this along with hundreds of other questions. It also instructs on the use of steady-cam and makeup for male and female actors.
Next up is Movie Production. This extends the scope of the basic production set applying all the principals learned on a live movie set. All the theories learned come alive when you rehearse and perform on a live set. First watch the finished film and learn how to become a better writer then analyze the script for story and structure. You will learn how to write better, more powerful screenplays and create convincing, believable characters. After that, delve into the actual world that created the movie. You will be completely immersed in the production world accompanying the director and cinematographer through every decision just as though you were on the set.
After Basic and Movie Production jump into Advanced Lighting. The Advanced Lighting course puts you in physical lighting situations and teaches you how to come out with flying colors. How do you coordinate the production of a scene that is supposed to be lit by three candles, 50 candles, a fire, fluorescent light, mixed daylight and studio light, smoke and chrome object?
