Introduction to Filmmaking
Reviewed by Patricia B. on 8/28/2018
I'm so happy I told this class. The class was a hands on immersive experience in creating a film from a short scene. It felt like one week too short. I learned a lot about what aspects of filmmaking I'm interested in and will pursue more thoroughly. Worth the money and time!
