On location in the Czech Republic
Learn about film production in the Czech Republic and earn course credit toward your degree this summer. Short Film Production takes students to Prague for a four-week summer intensive course.
The program will cover screenwriting, directing, cinematography and editing. When the course ends, students will have completed a short film inspired by the history, people and places in Prague. Situated on a hilltop overlooking the winding Vltava River, Prague is an ideal location for students to produce their own short films.
The course is offered in collaboration with the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and taught by Media School senior lecturer Craig Erpelding.
This is an advanced course. Applicants will be asked to submit their resume, select a preferred production role and describe their experience.
Enrollment in this course is by application. To be eligible, you must:
- Be an undergraduate candidate at IU Bloomington
- Be in at least your fourth full-time semester of college
- Have satisfied the following prerequisites with grades of B or higher:
- MSCH-C 223 or TEL-T 206
- MSCH-C 228, MSCH-P360, MSCH-P361 or TEL-T 283
