Core Filmmaking, SOCAPA's most popular intensive, is now online! While the writing room may look different... the Core of the program is the same. From writing roundtables, to collaborative online projects, to peer-led critiques, and final showcase celebrations, SOCAPA's Core Filmmaking Online continues to emphasize the importance of building relationships with other young artists and facilitating creative collaboration.
Comparative to a first-year university course, Core Filmmaking introduces students to the art of cinematic storytelling. Students learn the fundamentals of filmmaking with separate classes in screenwriting, directing, producing, cinematography and editing during their Main Block. And during either Creative Block, students will put their knowledge into action by writing collaboratively in small groups or completing remote assignments in screenwriting, cinematography, editing, and directing.
