Introduction to The Anatomy of Filmmaking


 

Apprentice-Style Learning


In the past, before there were film schools, you had to travel to Hollywood and study under a professional. This sometimes took many years but it was an effective method of learning how to make films.

This video series will guide you in a similar fashion, showcasing every step professionals take in producing a film.

When you are finished watching this series you will have a complete understanding of the various production phases, departments, and jobs involved in the filmmaking business.
