Gordys film class he wanted me to upload this so he could show family & friends !!! Hotel Hell is a student film, made in the Let’s Make a Movie class. Students in the class wrote the film, operated the camcorder, marked the scenes with a slate, held the boom mic to record the audio, helped set up and break down the lights, made props and costumes, and worked craft services In this class we’ll create and film a short independent movie from scratch. Students are free to act in it, help write or choose a script, and help out on crew. (It’s also fine to just sit back and watch and take notes, if you like.) LET’S MAKE A MOVIE is a fun way to find out what it feels like to be in front of the camera (or behind it), and is helpful for people thinking about producing movies of their own. The instructor has produced over thirty shorts and four full length features, and has taught acting and filmmaking for over ten years. His films have played in major international film festivals. LET’S MAKE A MOVIE is: a FILM class where you’ll learn how movies are made, step by step …an ACTING class where students who want to be in the movie, can get some experience acting for the camera (you can choose whether to act in the movie, help out on crew, or just watch and take notes)… and a PRODUCTION class where you’ll have fun while actually making a short independent movie with the rest of the class.
