About this class

PitchNic, Spy Hop’s most advanced filmmaking program, is a year-long project-based class for young filmmakers who are ready to collaborate with like-minded artists and take their skills to the next level. If you are looking for a place to both uplift and challenge your filmmaking skills, PitchNic is the place for you. In this course, you, along with your classmates, will create four short films, two fiction, and two nonfiction–taking them through all of the stages of production: idea conceptualization, screenwriting, writing treatments, pitching, producing, shooting, editing, and more! This course is a great opportunity to prepare for professional filmmaking experience with professional cinema cameras and gear. PitchNic ends with a red carpet film premiere!
