Their first year, students gather around the inner sanctum of the creative television-scripting world, the writer’s table. Over a week, students hole themselves in the writer's room from morning to evening to revise and complete a draft of the Central Project pilot script.
Their second year, students collaborate on a five (5) day shoot of two scenes from the Central Project pilot episode at locations in Brooklyn. Students will not only observe, but will function as members of the crew on the shoot. There will be ongoing discussions with the director, DP, and editor about each take and whether everything that is needed to assemble a great scene has been captured on film. During the process, the cohorts will view “dailies” and participate in the decision as to which takes should be used to compile the scenes. At the end of the week a first assemblage of both scenes will be viewed.
