20th Anniversary Open House & Workshops
Saturday, Oct. 11th
Choose a FREE Workshop: 9:30 – 11:00am
It use to be that there were only a couple of ways for getting aerial footage for you film; you either licensed footage from a stock library, or you had to rent a helicopter and shoot it yourself. Both were expensive and came with their own limitations. Now, however, with drone technology becoming more and more reliable, aerial footage is within pretty much every indie filmmaker's grasp. This workshop goes over the mechanics of drones, controls,, safety, and best practices for getting the most out of these amazing tools.
Online content is blossoming, and one of the most standout areas for filmmakers is the webseries. Whether your webseries is informational or fictional, comedic or dramatic, this workshop will run you through the ins and outs of making it successful. From fundraising to distribution, writing to distribution, you'll walk away with a greater understanding and appreciation for this growing and exciting media form.
Open House: 11:00am – 1:00pm
Join us for a tour of our new 10,000 sq. ft digs and hear what we're all about from part-time classes to all of our certificate, BA, and graduate degree programs in Filmmaking, Sound Design & Recording Arts, Motion Graphics & Visual FX, Acting for Film, Producing, and Composing for Film. We have one of the most innovative BA programs in the country where you can take film classes before your general ed classes and complete a BA in three years instead of four. If you already have an AA degree or its equivalent, you can earn a BA in one calendar year. For those looking for graduate degrees, we have perhaps the only graduate program that includes both production and producing. You can earn your MFA in Filmmaking and Producing in two years, or an MA in Producing in 10 months with a totally evening schedule. And finally, we have a 10 month accelerated Masters of Music degree in Composing for Film. To say the least, if you're interested in filmmaking, there's a place for you here at the Seattle Film Institute.
