July 24, 31, August 7, 14; plus Sept. 18 & 25 for shoot

Course Fee: $500 (Early Bird/ANMT Member Fee: $475)

This summer...write an internet movie musical and get it filmed and onto YouTube! Here's how it works.

Week One - Sunday July 24 - 2-5pm - We'll discuss logistics, location, mechanics of the shoot, as well as the artform and your musical itself.

Week Two - Sunday July 31 - 2-5pm - Bring in an outline for your musical. We'll discuss form, content, shape, character, story, and casting

Week Three - Sunday August 7 - 2-5pm - Bring in the first draft of your musical.

Week Four - Sunday August 14 - 2-5pm. Bring in revision of your musical. We'll discuss camera angles, locations, mechanics.

Sunday August 21 - Final draft due, with tracks. Upload date only; no meeting in person.

September 18 & 25 - We'll shoot your musical! Additionally, you'll assist as hidden cameraman in other writers' musicals. Exact schedule to be determined, but plan on 9-6pm on both days.

Parameters for your musical:

- 2-3 minutes in length
- Shootable 'guerrilla-style' (we'll swoop in to some location, perform your piece surrounded by hidden cameras, and then swoop away -- one take and we're gone!)

Here's what you'll do:
- write the show
- provide the track
- contact actors
- help be a hidden camera crew member for your fellow writers' musicals

Here's what we'll do:
- rehearse the actors
- direct the show
- co-ordinate the shoot
- edit your show (A $2,000 value!)
- upload your show on YouTube and
- provide you with a copy for your own use

Cost: $500 per musical

Note: We need a minimum of 8 projects for this course to go forward.
