Learn the fundamentals of visual storytelling! In this workshop, you will learn how to make short films relying only on a smartphone and your own imagination. No filmmaking experience is required.  

As you probably know, the world of film and television was dramatically impacted by the pandemic. Suddenly, working in small groups was not only more practical, it was critically important to everyone’s safety. 

But here’s the silver lining: these limitations reminded us that special effects, advanced editing software, and big budgets are not necessary to tell a great story. With nothing more than a cell phone and your own creativity, you have the ability to touch people and move them in profound and meaningful ways.  

So, whether filmmaking is your passion, your hobby or just something you’ve always wanted to try, Smartphone Filmmaking will help you translate your vision into expressive images.  

Student Learning Objectives

  • Students will be introduced to the art of directing.
  • Students will learn how to create a shot list, floor plan, storyboard, and shooting schedule
  • Students will understand the components of designing a shot.
  • Students will understand how to make use of blocking and staging. 

Requirements

  • A Smartphone (or any simple camera)  
  • Note: While it is recommended that you have a means of cutting your shots together (iMovie, for example), it is not a necessity. Films can also be edited in camera or even made in one long continuous shot.

As a screenwriter, Kerven co-authored "Mortal Thoughts," which starred Bruce Willis, and worked as a staff writer for director/producer Sam Raimi (“Spiderman”).
