Apply Now for Cinema Project Workshop Course with Drama

The School of Drama is offering the course again next Spring and applications are now open for Media Studies students to apply for roles as key collaborators on 3 short narrative films.

The Cinema Project Workshop course is now in its 4th year and has produced 15 short films involving over 100+ MFA Drama and MA Media Studies students. The films are short narrative films written by the 3rd MFA Drama Playwrights, directed by 3rd MFA Drama Directors and starring all of the 3rd Year MFA Drama Actors.

MA Media Studies students collaborate on the films as Directors of Photography, Editors, Co-Producers, Sound Recordists & Designers, and First Assistant Directors. Jazz and Mannes students compose scores for the films. The class meets weekly on Tuesdays, 4pm-6pm. Student production teams meet outside of class hours to produce and edit the films throughout the Spring semester.

This year Drama is producing 3 films and it’s more competitive for seats. Media students have the chance to apply this fall and if they apply early enough, will have the chance to meet Drama students and hear readings of the screenplays. They will be accepting applications through January and acceptance into the workshop will be confirmed no later than mid-January. There is flexibility for students interested in auditing the course to gain experience in production support roles (1st AC, PA).
