Documentary and Fictionprintversie

This course is in English. Some of the courses in Dutch are also accessible for non-Dutchies. For more info check the specific course you’re interested in.

Have you ever wanted to make a film? In this course you will learn all the basics you need to know: you will write, shoot, direct, use the camera and edit your own short films.

This course covers elements of fiction filmmaking such as screenwriting, acting and directing, and concepts of documentary filmmaking like screenwriting, directing, shooting and the edit.

The course
How do you put ideas into images? You will deal both with the practical elements of filmmaking (how does this camera work?) and the basics of storytelling for film (where do I put my camera?). You will learn about framing, working as a crew, making a mise-en-scène and a decoupage (why do I put my camera there? Which shots do I need?).

You will work with digital camcorders on short exercises and you will learn how to operate our non-linear editing sets. The course will be completed with an individual project if you like. You can also work as a crewmember on other people's films. Please take into account that this does mean that you need to make time in between classes to work on or shoot your film projects! Many things will be done during class, but not everything.
See for film projects of last classes: The Lift, Found and Neus.

Final Screening
There will be a final screening of work in the CREA Theater. Your own premiere! Bring your family & friends.

Entrance Requirements

During the course, you can use the equipment that is present at CREA. We use digital camera's and edit with Adobe Premiere Pro.

You will work with camera's that need SDHD memory cards. You can use the camera's outside the actual course itself. You need to provide your own memory card to store your footage. Use a memory card with minimal class 4. The higher the class, the faster it is to transfer the film.

At the beginning of each class, every student gets a pass with a bar code which allows him or her to use video equipment.
