Intensive, day-long class
with Pilar Alessandra
Sometimes there’s nothing more overwhelming than writing small. That’s why in this class we concentrate on the short film’s unique structure and consider all of the artistic possibilities.
A short film can be a career starter, a piece of art or just an entertaining, bite-sized moment on screen. No matter what your end-game, this class will get you started by helping you get your short film on the page and on the screen.
