“What’s the difference between Filmmaking 101 and Let’s Make a Movie?”

In a nutshell: Let’s Make a Movie is an acting class. Students will get some practice acting in front of the camera. The instructor will write a script; students will be cast in it; and everyone who wants to, will have a chance to act in it. (You can sign up just to be an observer if you want, or you can bring your own camera and film along.)

 is where we cover all of the THEORY behind what we’re doing.

Screenwriting 101 is an introduction to screenwriting. 

Another class that can be helpful to filmmakers is Beginning Acting.  It’ll give you a place to meet some good actors, and “scout” talent for your movie while participating in the class and learning how actors approach their work.


Student comments:

“I found your classes on the web when I was looking for Seattle film schools.  I was looking for a school that was affordable because I didn’t want to get into a student loan situation.  I don’t know yet if this will be a career. I was just wanting to learn how to make movies for fun.  The classes are good and I did learn a lot.  I took Let’s Make a Movie and the Crash Course in Filmmaking class, and will be taking the video editing class next.   Your classes are a resource to the community and I recommend the classes to people who would like to learn more about filmmaking and want the end product to look professional. Thank you.” – Lee R., Seattle
