In this class, students will go from having never touched a camera before to making their own 5-10 minute short film. In each class session, we’ll learn a few concepts, then put them into practice in an in-class exercise, which will contribute to the creation of their own films. By the end of the class, their films will be complete, and we’ll have a short film festival to show them all off!
The course will place an emphasis on the practical knowledge necessary to be a successful young filmmaker. No matter the student’s previous experience level, this course will be an excellent way to introduce them to the magic of filmmaking and begin their portfolio with their very own short film.

All the details
I’m glad they learned about making production calendars, slating, working with actors, things like that. Lots of of film classes leave out that stuff even though it’s important.
My kiddo had only good things to say about this class. The school sent me a review form after the class was complete and I asked him what he thought. He said “Give Cody all the stars”.
I learned to edit like Mr. Beast.
Learning to edit was really interesting. It’s fun to know how your favorite YouTubers create their style.
Blown away by the quality of teaching at Alyra. It’s not every day you come across such dedication online.
Not my favorite
The class forum is really helpful
Cody posts the the class materials and bonus handouts in the class forum after each class session which was really helpful
My daughter looked forward to this class every week
