Smartphone Filmmaking in Prague

Tell your stories from Prague, Czech Republic

Are you studying filmmaking? Journalism? Marketing? Advertising? Fine Arts? They all require skillful storytelling. During the three-week summer course, you will explore the visual storytelling process, earn three-course credits toward your degree, and be forever changed.

Using your smartphones, you will explore the nooks and crannies of Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, learn its history, take a long weekend in Berlin, and develop and translate your experiences into short fiction and documentary films.

Course requirements

You must have a smartphone and know how to edit and post videos, have a curious mind, an open heart, and an adventurous spirit. You will be asked to submit your resume, provide samples of creative work (show your imagination with photographs, short films, music, drawings, short stories, or scripts), and write an essay on why the trip excites you (Hello! It’s Prague! In May!).

The course is taught in English, is offered in collaboration with the Council on International Educational Exchange, and is taught by Media School senior lecturer Susan Kelly.

The application period for the summer 2024 course has now passed.
