New FilmSkills Modules for June

FilmskillsLogoI'm really excited about this next series of modules.

We partnered with several Emmy-winning and Emmy-nominated production designers, art directors, set decorators and construction coordinators to bring youa very in-depth look at the design and construction of both sets and existing locations.  We just released three of the nine modules in the series: Set Design, Set Construction and Set Dressing.  You can find them under the Production Design section.  We will be releasing the rest of modules throughout the month.  Enjoy!

New Modules for May!

I'm happy to let you know that we just released ten new modules. Learn about clamps, rigging, stands and grip tools in the new Grip and Rigging section, how to work with the miltary in the Directing section, the role of the gaffer in The Electric Department, and film vs. video and analog vs. digital in the new Technology and Equipment section. We're working on finishing a pretty cool set of modules on Production Design, so look for that in the next few weeks. Enjoy!
