They Like It! Another 8 Weeks of Writing, Directing and Acting For Film at SF Digital Film Making School!

   Mon, March 9, 2009 - 8:43 PM
San Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking has asked me to teach yet another round of this very popular class, and they've dropped the price!


An intensive yet fun workshop involving three filmmaking disciplines, writing, directing and acting, that will encourage a crossover of teamwork, networking, and the creative process.

Actors (intermediate to advanced level) will work with film directors and writers on camera.

Directors (all levels) will learn more about the acting process, develop the terms that actors understand in order to deliver their best performances on a film-set.

Writers (all levels) can bring in their pre-existing scripts and those in development to hear their words come to life by the Actors’ performance in class. This will help them develop their scripts further.

Directors and Writers will also have the opportunity to act themselves, to understand better what it feels like being on camera.

By working with the concepts and techniques of improvisation, action choices, beats, scene arcs and colors, all participating Actors, Directors and Writers will see their characters and stories come to life on camera.

All class-work will be videotaped and the writers & directors will retain a copy of it for their own records and further viewing.

Start date: April 1, 2009
Class time: Wednesdays, 6:30 - 9:30pm (8 weeks)
Instructor: Jeffrey Weissman
Prerequisite: Instructor's approval
Tuition: $240
