FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How many weeks is this course?
- 33 weeks
When does the course start?
- September 2nd, 2020
When does enrollment end?
- August 31st, or as soon as all slots are filled.
What will my child be learning?
- The course will cover a wide range of topics geared toward giving students a comprehensive look at the film and television world. They will be taught about screenwriting, producing, tech requirements and cameras, cinematography, directing, audio, voice over, editing, storyboarding, etc.
What equipment will my child need?
- No special equipment is required. Students will need access to a cellphone for filming. Any basic editing software will be fine. There are many free options online that we will discuss with the students. Other than that, they will need only reliable internet for the group classes and to receive their video assignments.
What will the time commitment be for my student?
- Weekly video assignments (10-20 min. long) with instructions will be sent out each Wednesday. The assignments should not take more than 1 additional hour each week for the first semester. Second semester could go up to 2 additional hours a week since they will be putting together a short film for their final project. Then they will have a group class on Wednesdays on Zoom. This will be mentoring, Q&A, and Steve will go deeper into the topic for the week. That class should be no longer than an hour. So about 2-4 hours a week.
What experience does instructor Steven Heumann have to offer?
- Mr. Heumann has worked in the television and film industry for almost 20 years as Senior Producer of the long-running program At Your Leisure, along with The Geek Report, County Seat, G3EK, and others. He has written and directed dozens of short films as well as full-length features, and has published five novels and numerous short stories. Over his career he has produced over a thousand hours of television content, filming, editing, writing, and producing as needed. He has also appeared regularly on-camera as reporter and host, so he is able to teach aspects from both sides of production. His current work as a full-time novelist has allowed him to branch out even further, developing relationships with creators that will allow an even broader depth to this year's Film & Broadcasting Course.
When is tuition due?
- Tuition is due upon completing registration unless arrangements have been made with Mr. Heumann or a member of his staff in advance. No refunds will be given after the first class on September 2nd. Any drop-outs prior to the start of the Fall Semester will be refunded in full.
