Taught by Rebuild’s Darren Wallace, this free course features less an emphasis on formal cinematic grammar but rather developing participants’ own filmic language to articulate their stories and document their community.

Though the basics of visual composition are introduced, participants will engage in experimental, guerrilla, as well as traditional studio filmmaking practices in adapting their narratives. This project-centered workshop engages students in non-narrative, alternative aspects of video and digital production learning first how to communicate a theme, idea or emotion using the basic building blocks of cinema.
