About This Class

What does a film director actually do behind the camera, and how do they do it?

We go behind the scenes to watch Julian Klepper - filmmaker and film educator - as he takes us through the world of directing film. Following up on his first class on how to make low budget films, in this class we'll go deeper into directing from the technical (e.g. choosing lenses, recording sound) to the emotional (directing actors, setting the vibe on set) as we follow Julian while he directs his short film, "The Moment".

Who is this class for? 

This class is a must-watch for anyone who works (or wants to work) in film. Cinema lovers, aspiring filmmakers, actors and video hobbyists will learn how to bring more emotion into video projects and gain a deeper understanding on how great films are made. 

For an immersive learning experience, Julian draws on examples from a short film that he wrote and directed specifically for this Skillshare class entitled "The Moment". We'll have a chance to watch the film, then dive deep into key concepts that are crucial for becoming an accomplished film director. By the end of this class, you will have an understanding of everything a director must do on set to create an emotive short film in just 5 shots.  

Key Concepts include:

  1. Writing Your Scene
  2. Pre-Production Planning
  3. Directing On Set 
  4. The Five Shot technique
  5. Directing Actors
  6. Lenses & Visual Style 

See you in class!
