Coffee Break Film School About CBFS How much can you learn in the length of a latte? Coffee Break Film School aims to be a comprehensive introduction to the arts and crafts of filmmaking. We’ve brought together the key elements of each area of filmmaking–script writing, lighting, cinematography, editing, effects, sound etc.–in short, concise videos. The focus here is on distilling only the core competency skills for each discipline so that you’re out and shooting quality movies as quickly as possible. Each lesson typically runs under 15 minutes and in that time covers a complete aspect of one of the filmmaking disciplines. Each unit of the school comprises several sections: The Core: These are the primary lessons, with each unit covering an aspect of script writing, lighting, cinematography, editing and color, visual effects, production essentials, and sound. Inspiration: moviola.com has leveraged its deep ties to the film industry to bring you interviews with a diverse range of top-tier artists in the Hollywood production and postproduction scenes. For each unit we’ve chosen to highlight an interview that expands on concepts taught in the core lessons. Going deeper: This section leverages moviola.com’s unique library of interviews with industry professionals, video lectures expanding on the core topic information, and coverage of the commercial aspects of the process (selling your film, marketing, distribution, budgeting). Around the web: We don’t claim to have a monopoly on good training content. There’s some amazing content out there in the world wide web. The challenge is wading through the morass of mediocre content to find the gold. Fear not: the moviola.com team has tracked down the “best of the rest” and incorporated it here as supplemental material for our core lessons.
