About the course

The end credits of a movie can sometimes sound like gibberish. What do all those jobs even mean? In this lesson, we will be going over some of the key roles that are played on movie sets. We will also go over which roles are necessary when making a smaller budget and/or student film. Ready? Action!

Hi! I'm Julia and I just graduated in May 2020 from SUNY Purchase where I studied filmmaking. I have been a teacher for about 4 years. I have taught both preschool and high school students. While teaching at Gooroo, my areas of teaching fluctuate between middle to high school level film courses and preschool to elementary crafts and educational activities. I enjoy helping students unlock their full potential in order to pursue their passions! My philosophy is to do what you love, take risks, and don’t be afraid of making mistakes (that’s normally when the best lessons are learned!).
