Frontier Filmmaking Seminar (FFS)

The FFS is a five to six-week seminar designed to give you an experience of what it is like to be a production assistant on a cross-cultural film crew producing a dramatic, evangelistic film for an unreached mega (1 million or more) people group on the 20/20 Vision list. We cover basic training in a variety of filmmaking disciplines including photography, cinematography, scriptwriting, editing and cross-cultural methods to effectively communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ through video. We then make an actual movie together for three weeks with professional Create International staff and our local partners.
