&Vanessa-I know that you said you get a taste of everything, but are there classes for editing. and if there are, what’s the final class
Angela Marie Duffek
44:33
Hi everyone. The program is fabulous, they offer actors auditions.
Vanessa Henry
44:49
I have question about the Drones, I almost purchased one for filming soo I do have questions
Joseph Sevilla

Cristian Castillo

Are volunteering opportunities available only to currently-enrolled students or to anyone?
George Lucas

@janas I know that you said you get a taste of everything, but are there classes for editing. and if there are, what’s the final class

Does AAU provide any sort of job placement assistance to graduates?
Joseph Sevilla
47:04
Question: which directors have been aau to help students?
George Lucas
48:12
II wish my dad went to AAU
Angela Marie Duffek
50:57
Green screen is so fun. The more you know about the process the easier it is to work with.
Angela Marie Duffek
52:11
GS offers unlimited creativity.
George Lucas
52:15
@Angela I agree, and I wish to know more on who to use it
John Beeson
53:04
WOW
Angela Marie Duffek
53:08
Editing is essential.
Elena Orrill
54:08
thats incredible
Vanessa Henry
54:25
I do know who they are
George Lucas
54:30
@jack I just remembered, I made a video with my dad on purely green screen and it looks like I’m talking to him on video chat
HVerdugo@academyart.edu
54:44
@George- Way cool!
JACK PEREZ

“Editing is not AN aspect of directing. It is THE aspect of directing.” - Orson Welles
JACK PEREZ
57:26
Curious to see it. Green screen can be tricky, but also can be mastered.
Vanessa Henry
59:55
LOL yes I know the Blob
JACK PEREZ
01:00:09
Right on.
George Lucas
01:00:48
@ Jack I know 😂🤣😂 I think I learned the hard way. the volume is wonky, but the green screen is on point. if you send me your email I can send it to you, if you want
Angela Marie Duffek
01:01:10
High budget and low budget. Got it.

Gaga Oghomi
01:02:21
the voice audio is good for me
Angela Marie Duffek
01:02:58
Scheduling is so important.
Angela Marie Duffek
01:03:51
What's a production company?
Angela Marie Duffek
01:04:58
CG offers so much
Angela Marie Duffek
01:05:17
We are so lucky to have technology
JACK PEREZ
01:06:06
Generally, a production company is the business owned by a producer or producers, that organizes the movie (from hiring to delivering the final print). Production companies can be independent, or have deals with the studios.
Angela Marie Duffek
01:06:30
Sets and sound stages are real places
Gaga Oghomi
01:07:12
Need to plan, before you really start.
JACK PEREZ
01:08:50
Hi John. Happy to help!
Angela Marie Duffek
01:09:28
Stronger networks can provide viable associations
Angela Marie Duffek
01:12:22

Thanks Justine
George Lucas

I almost thought jaws, but then it took a shark nato turn
Mary Tavares
01:15:36
That was so entertaining
Angela Marie Duffek
01:16:05
Ghost Busters was a beautiful movie
Niara Hancock
01:16:36
That was like sharknado on steroids but very attention grabing
George Lucas
01:17:10
@Hancock 😂🤣😂
Mary Tavares
01:17:47
The shark attacking the airplane was ridiculously funny
Angela Marie Duffek
01:18:40
I took the course The History of VFX lecture. It was extremely insightful
Gaga Oghomi
01:21:57
highlight parts are very descriptive. really does allow the special effects to have more open freedom
George Lucas
01:22:47
@ Jack I actually sent you two videos. I’m sorry they’re both “music videos” actually lip sync videos. but I do have others. I just targeted my newest videos.
Angela Marie Duffek
01:23:45
The directors vision
Angela Marie Duffek
01:24:33
Communication is often difficult
George Lucas
01:27:05
@angela the writer’s vision for the director. some directors get rid of the vision of the writer and gets called out for it. big example the shining
Angela Marie Duffek
01:27:16
I'm thinking about Bruce Lee's incredible stunts
Niara Hancock
01:28:09
Almost like resident evil but instead, it's just one monster
Angela Marie Duffek
01:28:24
One on one
Angela Marie Duffek
01:28:49
Terminator II
George Lucas
01:30:30
@angela terminator??? I think that was 3 on one. but 2 was the worst
Angela Marie Duffek
01:33:38
Animatronic or Actor
George Lucas
01:34:45
I think it’s the pen points.
Angela Marie Duffek
01:36:57
I was hoping to see a lady monster, sorry
Niara Hancock
01:37:45
I'd love to see this as a 3D animation
Jana
01:38:08
Live Action
Isabella Cameron
01:38:21
That's sooo cool
George Lucas
01:38:25
3D live action it would make a great horror movie
Cristian Castillo
01:38:30
Awesome seeing that progression from storyboard to animation
Angela Marie Duffek
01:38:49
I would really like to be more familiar with CG software programs
George Lucas
01:39:17
you know what me to 😂
Angela Marie Duffek
01:39:19
Just from a creative perspective
JACK PEREZ
01:41:00
Live action!
Angela Marie Duffek
01:44:16
Great workshop nice to see you all.
Alexie Lopez
01:44:35
do screenwriters get to work on set or have a say of what happens?
dericklazaro
01:44:46
Does AAU provide any sort of job placement assistance to graduates?
Adam Supino
01:45:14
Any pro-tips on choosing shots to convene intentional emotions?
Avery Kruger
01:45:17
Someone asked this already but can anyone volunteer on set or do you have to be already enrolled?
Niara Hancock
01:45:25
How you ever went out of state/country to soot a movie for more life-like scenes
Angela Marie Duffek
01:45:36
For me commitment and believing in what your project is about will add to it's success.
Niara Hancock
01:45:37
Have*
Julianne Kan
01:45:40
Thank you. A lot of good information from you all, the experts.
Alexie Lopez
01:46:34
if a book becomes a movie, does the author get some control over the production of the film?
Isabella Cameron
01:48:09
For directors, is there any advice for keeping up motivation when shooting a film that you know the budget is really small for and has lots of limits on creative freedom- since a lot of beginner filmmakers usually envision Steven Spielberg level productions
Avery Kruger
01:48:52
Are there any successful alums from AAU?
Xena Danielle Resurreccion
01:49:28
To what extent does the director or producer usually override the writer’s decisions/intentions? And how often are the director and writer the same person?
Elena Orrill
01:49:29
how do you get started
Angela Marie Duffek
01:49:33
It has to be done in a studio, time is money
dericklazaro
01:49:46
do students get the opportunity to shoot on actual film or is it all digital these days?
Elena Orrill
01:49:55
how do you audition
Alexie Lopez
01:50:01
is it possible to be a movie screenwriter and producer?
HVerdugo@academyart.edu
01:50:14
@Elena- A great way to start is to go to school to build your skill set and develop a portfolio/film reel to get yourself ready for the industry.
Cristian Castillo
01:50:25
A question for both of you: What led you to pursue this career path, and how did each of you start off?
HVerdugo@academyart.edu
01:50:26
Email me: Hector Verdugo- Senior Vice President of AdmissionsEmail: hverdugo@academyart.edu
dericklazaro
01:50:36
are the majority of the jobs still in LA or is that changing?
Marina Zangrossi
01:50:50
How would you work your way up the ranks in this type of field? Like going form an assistant to, whatever position you want.
Justine Gurse
01:50:54
What about transfer students?
Adam Supino
01:51:58
Great great, thank you so much!
Angela Marie Duffek
01:52:03
Director and Cinematographer relationships a essential
HVerdugo@academyart.edu
01:52:19
@Justine- If you are looking to transfer email me so I can walk you through the steps.
HVerdugo@academyart.edu

Hector Verdugo- Senior Vice President of AdmissionsEmail: hverdugo@academyart.edu
Justine Gurse
01:52:49

dericklazaro
01:52:54
What is the best movie you’ve seen in 2020?
Junhong Wu
01:52:59
I agree with you Angela!
Alysha Montoya
01:53:53
Would I fall behind if I transfer in 2022?
(Going through 2 years of community college by then)
HVerdugo@academyart.edu
01:53:56
Alysha- Not necessarily but I can work with you to figure out what the best plan for you will be. Sometimes you don't need to do a full 2 years to transfer.
HVerdugo@academyart.edu
01:53:57
Hector Verdugo- Senior Vice President of AdmissionsEmail: hverdugo@academyart.edu
Alysha Montoya
01:54:35
Can you be the writer and the director for the same piece of work?
Angela Marie Duffek
01:54:38
That's how I feel when I think about the Master's degree thesis short film
Alexie Lopez
01:54:49
say for a slasher film, would it be cheaper to do special effects rather than editing or CGI?
Justine Gurse
01:58:01
did you have to go back to school for anything?
Justine Gurse
01:58:14
@jana
Ian Woods
01:58:38
What if you're afraid of not being able to make connections?
JACK PEREZ
02:02:33
I know what you mean. I, too, was afraid. It doesn’t come naturally for me. But little by little I met people like me.
HVerdugo@academyart.edu
02:03:37
@Mason- The good news is that in the beginning you get exposed to everything. It will help you give out what it is you want to do in film.
HVerdugo@academyart.edu
02:03:49
Email me if you want to talk about options and how it works:
HVerdugo@academyart.edu
02:03:49
Hector Verdugo- Senior Vice President of AdmissionsEmail: hverdugo@academyart.edu
JACK PEREZ
02:04:11
I always prefer practical effects over CGI for horror.
JACK PEREZ
02:04:28
Check my film, SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE
Angela Marie Duffek
02:04:33
Jack, do you sometimes wonder what a director really does?
Angela Marie Duffek
02:06:05
re-write Do you sometimes wonder if the actors and others on the set know what a directors function is?
JACK PEREZ
02:07:54
A strong director is instantly recognizable by cast and crew in terms of their abilities. People outside the industry usually have trouble identifying exactly what a director does.
Cristian Castillo
02:08:47
What are things that film school helped you to understand/establish that you couldn’t have understood/established without attending?
Cristian Castillo
02:14:22
that’s sweet. thank you.
