Northland Film School Offers New Film Courses
DULUTH, Minn.- More opportunities are underway for filmmakers, editors, and writers, with three different courses offered through the Northland Film School.
“Wherever you go, I think in Northern Minnesota, there’s such a rich kind of history and strong identity,” said filmmaker Matthew Koshmrl. “And I thought this would be a really great place to facilitate film school.”
Northland Film School Director, Matthew Koshmrl, is bringing filmmaking courses to the Northland to help people expand their skills within the industry. The three courses are designed to help people at all experience levels.
“All of these are entry-level; we start with basic film theory and watch films together and talk about the different types of films we can make,” said Koshmrl. “In my course, we’ll talk about the different styles of documentary. And then we write proposals, and we learn the equipment, we learn storytelling. It’s very much a holistic approach.”
The film school offers a virtual screenwriting course, an editing course in Chisholm, and a documentary film production course at Zeitgeist in Duluth.
Starting over the next couple of weeks, each class will meet once a week for two and a half hours over eight weeks.
“The goal for my course is that you can come out of the course and you’re comfortable making a film by yourself by the finish of the course,” said Koshmrl.
The courses will give students access to professional production and editing equipment, helping them create quality content they can use as experience.
You can enroll in any of the three courses through the Zeitgeist Arts website.
The film school plans on adding more courses over time, giving people the opportunity to specialize their skills.
