NWFF Summer Classes


NWFF’s summer class listings are now online. And I must say, it’s a lovely assemblage of gifted and talented instructors leading thoughtful discussions and discourses. One of Seattle’s gurus of screen vocabulary, Brian McDonald, has tailored his story-writing class for the filmmaker audience with Cinematic ¬†Storytelling. We’re also introducing a new class on 3-D modeling and animation software: Introduction to Blender, led by Tony Mullen (an animation virtuoso who cut his animation teeth with NWFF’s own Bolex camera.) Peaking further into the changes that technology is having on filmmaking, we’re offering a one-day class about filming with digital SLRs and another on digital post production.

Special guests will be bringing their skilled expertise to teach: longtime music-documentarian Murray Lerner shares his doc-making knowledge, Vincent Moon offers his own approach to music-inspired film with a show and tell of quiet, intimate musical performances, and brothers Benny and Josh Safdie challenge you to write from the gut by watching and analyzing films that tug at your emotional strings in ever to so subtle ways, and use that to kick-start your own heart-felt storytelling.

And for the teen filmmakers, we still have space available in our two-week Mixed Animation Camp for 14-17 year olds, happening in August. Scholarships are available!
