This class is a crash course in independent film making, and a chance to practice your on-camera skills in a real short film. Students will work with filmmaker/instructor Stephen Cone to create and act in a variety of narrative short films. These films will be entirely rehearsed and shot over the course of the term.  

With an emphasis on improvisation, experimentation and human truth, the class will focus on the human being as the most vital and exciting subject of cinema. During filming a professional camera man and professional sound engineer will join the team to ensure quality results. Several weeks after the end of class, the short films will be edited, and posted on Vimeo for viewing and sharing!

This class is limited to 10 actors.

Required: Strong professional experience and training determined by submission of headshot and resume.

The following Cinema Lab Short titled, "Support," evolved into the feature length "This Afternoon" which debuted at the Chicago International Film Festival.
