Live in Montreal for two months and study Urban Indie Filmmaking with celebrated Champlain College professor and Hollywood director Rob Schmidt Barracano. Home base will be Champlain's downtown Montreal campus located on Sherbrooke Street (near Rue Berri).
Montreal is a dynamic cultural and media center, home to the production of many Hollywood films and many cultural festivals and events (including the Montreal World Film Festival in August). There are few cities in the world offering this much access to film and creative culture.
During the first session, students will engage in intensive screenwriting and cinematography work that will culminate in the second session with a month of "urban indie filmmaking" that includes shooting, directing, editing and post production using state-of-the-art equipment. All participants will complete an original short film project.
Rob Schmidt Barracano, a professor at Champlain College, has taught in NYU's graduate film program in Singapore and at SUNY Purchase's program. He studied at the American Film Institute and is a member of the Directors Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America.
