Rolling Stone joined forces with IndieWire, New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and the online-education platform Yellowbrick to launch “Film and TV Industry Essentials” last year. The program began enrolling students earlier this fall, and the curriculum is composed of five easily digestible course modules. Each of the concise lessons lasts between three and five hours, and includes a range of veteran filmmakers, executives, NYU professors, alumni, and other experts discussing topics that matter to people in the field.
The online certificate program offers introductions and insight into multiple, interlacing careers in film and television, with a roster of contributors that includes everyone from filmmakers such as Judd Apatow, Ang Lee, Alrick Brown (Kinyarwanda), and Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), to a range of craftspeople and influential executives from across the industry. In the latest, Module 4, experts like Sam Pollard, Ang Lee and many more share their knowledge of non-linear editing, frame rates, VFX production, representation, intellectual property, profit participation, and more.
