In this five day filmmaking intensive, you'll get busy in the AFTRS state-of-the-art studio and take a short film script from page to screen.


Experienced industry filmmakers will guide students with lectures and fast paced practical exercises to conquer the major areas of directing, cinematography, and post production using Adobe Premiere Pro and the AFTRS professional sound Mix Theatre.

You’ll learn how to:

  • analyse, break down, and rehearse a short script,
  • to plan a shoot and work within a budget,
  • work with real actors,
  • dress a set,
  • record sound,
  • and get the inside scoop on the inner workings of crew roles and a film set.

You’ll get hands-on experience operating HD cameras, attending production meetings, and working with professional picture & sound editors all while collaborating to create, light, shoot and - most important - finish a short film.

At week’s end, students are encouraged to invite family & friends to a screening of your film.
