GRCC

This class is a basic film training class that is preparing Michigan residents for film productions due to the tax breaks given to film makers to film in Michigan.  

Instructed by a team of professionals that teach the class room on what to expect when working on a set or office environment.  Going through all the necessary paper work and attention to detail was a key aspect in making sure that daily documentation of events are recorded for archival. 

We also filmed a short, with class participation.  From writing, editing, grip work, and filming the scenes with expert guidance from our instructors.  Leaving this class gave me a clear understanding of what is necessary for a production to get a green light to start shooting.  I myself participated with camera assistant.  With a working knowledge of how a track dolly is assembled and properly operated for clean and steady shots.
