Beginning in March, The Digital Arts Experience is teaming up with the International Film Institute of New York to bring you top of the line filmmaking programs. Classes are for all who are interested in exploring film production. Together, we will be offering short and long term courses in all areas of filmmaking & storytelling.
Although technology is constantly changing, a good story will always attract an audience, and that is something that will never change. The International Film Institute of New York strives to preserve that tradition. One does not simply see a movie because of the camera used to film it; they go because it has a good story, actor, director, producer, and film crew who all work together to bring that idea to life. Good stories invoke emotion, feeling and move people. This is in direct alignment with the values and mission of the International Film Institute of New York.
The IFI has been running professional and hands-on filmmaking courses since 1998 and also runs partnership programs at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY and the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah.
The courses running in our facility include an Introductory Lighting Workshop, a Weekend Introduction to Filmmaking Seminar, a Screenwriting Seminar, and a Commercial Production Lab. We are not only pleased to be working in conjunction with the IFI, but excited to be able to present the White Plains and Westchester community with the opportunity to take part in these amazing classes.
For more detailed information, and a breakdown of each class, please refer to the partnership page on our website: http://thedae.com/ifi.html.
