WORKSHOP: Learn hands-on writing, directing, and producing a short movie in ONE week with Hear The Image Filmmaking workshop by Vassily Fedyaev.  In September we will be entering our 15th year with over 500 students and over 100 shorts produced.  See examples of student films at www.youtube.com/filmgenre  Most of the short films produced at my workshop have no dialogue and there is a reason for that--film is essentially a visual medium.  I teach how to tell stories without words because I believe that once you master the medium as it functions on its own, then you will be able to write dialogue that complements the visual.  In fact, then, dialogue becomes visual, any word spoken is perceived rather then heard.  Another peculiarity about my method is that I focus on "filmmaker" rather than "filmmaking."  I help you to develop and understand your creative process.  I help you to get in your element of your own creativity.  The techniques of filmmaking are acquired during a hands on process of actually shooting the film.  So the "filmmaking," the technical side of the process is not left out, but it is learned while actually making your film.  You learn by working with me as I am the shooter and the editor of your film and it happens in one-on-one interaction.  For information and registration please email workshop@filmgenre.com or call 832-891-1427.
