Filmmaker's Intensive

Crossroads Christian Church

The Dallas Filmmakers Alliance is proud to present our Four-hour class covering the basics for everything you need to know to be a crew member on an indie film from Development to post-production theory. The host, Nathaniel Aron, is a graduate of the UNT Media Arts program who has lead multiple productions within the DFA'S "Dallas Film Crew" and other organizations. Nathaniel is also currently an organizer of the DFA and has taken input from the experience of our own members.

Topics include but are not limited to:
Developmental processes
Roles on Set
Pre-production vocabulary
Script breakdowns
Shot List
Call Sheet
Art department vocabulary
Camera exposure
Audio recording
Post Production vocabulary
Script Supervising

At the end of the presentation, you will be invited to participate in our DFC "Flash Film" Kickoff on February 17th. The Flash Film will be written by the team, and as a team, you will assign roles and plan to complete the film within six weeks! Those that are successful will be screened on our 4K projector and promoted on our social media page. This is a great opportunity to put what you learned to the test!

This is a fun and exciting opportunity to collaborate on a creative accomplishment.
