Film 101 High School (sprint course)


Film 101 is The Underground’s foundational film course.  Students will receive a great introductory hands-on experience with the filmmaking process.  We cover the 5 parts of the filmmaking process (development, pre-production, production, post-production, and distribution) and help students master the basics of movie making while making their own movie along the way.

The program includes large group teaching, small group instruction with amazing teachers, industry professional workshops, film screenings and production team time where students make a short film from start to finish. This is the perfect place to learn before jumping into more advanced offerings.
