Independent Production mini-course: We love it?


I've heard already this afternoon from two students who participated in this weekend's mini-course on Independent Production. Both said they had an amazing experience, and both were enthusiastic about the next two sessions, both of which are scheduled in April.

Anybody else want to offer your insights on this one? Is this kind of short course helpful? Do you have ideas or suggestions for additional mini-courses?

And while we're at it, we're thinking about offering non-credit workshops to teach various software programs -- Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Final Cut Pro, for starters. Kristin Paciorkowski will be offering a Photoshop session at 3 p.m. on February25th in Park 270. If you're interested in attending, please email her and let her know.

These workshops are a great idea! What about offering them to students all across campus?

Just so I understand -- not to argue the point -- but how do those workshops come to us thanks to ICTV?

I learned an incredible amount just in one weekend with Alan. I think that the Cinema curriculum should have similar, required film business courses. Learning production and film art are two important things, but it's also absolutely necessary to understand how Hollywood works. There's so much to know about finding a job, working up the ladder, pitching ideas, etc that entire semesters could spent on them. Yes, there is the LA internship, which is key, but I think there needs to be more.

I am very excited to take one of the mini-courses in April. Do all three have similar topics, or is there something distinctly different about each one?

... Thanks to ICTV?

Some confusion here - the Indep. Prod. mini-course had no connection with ICTV.

Some non-credit lessons on various equipment and software are an initiative by ICTV volunteers and they are open to everyone.

The Crisis Communications one-credit mini-course March 18-20 is co-sponsored by OCLD and ICTV. Open to all majors, it will be taught by alumni Stu Katz and Rick Stone. Stu is a great presenter and there are still seats available!

If you're interested in the Photoshop Class, just email me at The class will start with basic photoshop skills and work up to advanced graphics creation. Who knows, we could even get as far as animation if the time allows. I would like to offer the classes every week on Friday at 3pm and possibly Wednesdays at 5 so if you are interested please indicate what time is best for you. Your input is totally welcome. I'd like all requests by next Monday (February 21) :-D Later!
