Making a film isn’t as hard as you think! Many people assume that filmmaking requires fancy equipment and expensive software, but for this class, all you need is a phone with a camera and a computer (preferred), iPad, or phone that can run iMovie (a free editing software).

Starting with the very basics of what makes a good story, we work our way through screenwriting, shooting, and editing. You'll create a short film of two to five minutes. At the end, you can show off all your hard work at the wrap party! After taking this class, in addition to producing a short film, you will have the knowledge and materials to continue creating short films on your own, whenever you want.

No experience necessary!


  • A materials fee of $20, included in the price of the class, covers what you'll need.
  • Students must also bring a device (preferably a computer) that runs iMovie and a phone with a camera.
