The Digital Cinema Course begins by detailed instructions on building a screenplay with proper structure and solid characters. Many screen writing textbooks have also done this, but the course is the first to do it by use of a dramatic short film teaching writers the basics of overcoming obstacles and disasters. This is then furthered by second more concise section outlining how to write in clear instructions. It categorizes specific methods and tools, and inspires writers who may have given up on dramatic storytelling. The following section describes how to physically construct a screenplay, what paper to use, how to bind it, and how to format the content. This is done with the use of computer graphics.

I give this course a THUMBS UP!
12 March 2007 | by philpaulopauloSee all my reviews

This is by far the most complete and thorough film-making course I have ever watched, and well worth the price of admission. I honestly just can't believe it was shipped free to the UK. Usually that's where they get me, is in the shipping. I am originally from Manhattan Beach, but I have been working out here for a while doing documentaries and EPKs. I think the free international shipping flows with the professionalism of the rest of the course, and the instant responses to my email questions. Good job team! Thank you for assembling a cohort of professionals and sticking to it from the first minute of playback to the last. If you are an amateur, this course will hold your hand from the first moment and let you fly by yourself at the end. If you are already a pro, it will help you organize your ideas, gear, techniques, and work flow, and I can't imagine anyone not learning a thing or two from the advanced lighting DVD. I give this course a THUMBS UP! Phil in the UK (Hometown: Manhattan Beach)
