Big Ideas on the Big Screen: How Economic Thinking Can Make You a Better Filmmaker
Chapman University | Orange, CA | April 25-27
 
Film can be a powerful medium for spreading ideas, influencing cultures, and changing our perceptions. Whether you are making comedies or dramas, documentaries or fiction, blockbusters or indie films, ideas will drive your film both on and off screen. Filmmakers often neglect economics because they fail to see the significance it brings to their lives and to their art. However, economic thinking can be a powerful tool for understanding human behaviors and motivations and for helping to make your film a reality.
 
With sessions led by economics professors, filmmakers, and expert storytellers, this seminar will give you a foundation of economic thinking that will help you see the world in a new way as well as important instruction in cinematic storytelling, distribution, and promotion.

This seminar is open to students 18-24 who have a demonstrated interest in filmmaking and is limited to 30 students, so apply early!
 
 

 
Liberty, Free Markets, and Moral Character
Clemson University | Clemson, SC | May 22 - May 25
 
What is the connection between liberty, free markets, and moral character? Economic thinking provides powerful insights about the world by explaining that people make choices and are driven by incentives. However, it does not tell you why people must make choices or, more importantly, what choices to make.
 
This seminar turns economic thinking on its head by looking at its foundations through a philosophic lens. What are the moral and philosophic underpinnings of economic thinking? Why do we have to make choices and how does moral character determine the choices people make?

If you are between 18-24 and interested in exploring these questions and more apply now!
