Where can I learn filmmaking online?
I am a full time programmer with no aspirations of becoming a filmmaker. That said, I enjoy photography and have been doing it for quite a bit. But I want to learn filmmaking or video or whatever the right term would be.
There is no "film industry" in my city, so there is nowhere I can go and be an apprentice. There is a 3 year "multimedia design" career at the university, but it's a full time career with 4 hours of lectures and assignments every day, so I can't take it because of work.
I've been looking for courses online but all I can find are silly "introduction" to filmmaking or cinematography tutorials, which are really introduction to photography ( aperture, focal distance... sigh, how many people can explain those concepts over and over agan?)
So, are there any courses you can suggest? Or any tips on how to learn video/cine/docmentary/filmmaking?
