FILMPROD 10AX: Filmmaking

This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of digital video production. The class will explore the process of expressing ideas in an audio-visual medium from the concept stage through post-production. Each student will acquire hands-on experience in directing, shooting, sound design, and editing on Final Cut Pro; examples of narrative, documentary, and experimental work will be screened and discussed in class. There will be three short exercises: 1) Audio Self-Portrait; 2) Continuity exercise, in which a story is conceptualized and executed in-camera with no additional editing; and 3) Final Project: working in pairs, students will create a visual essay that explores a process, place, person, or theme. This course is truly INTENSIVE and requires a significant amount of work (including nights and weekends) outside of class. There are daily deadlines for submission of creative work.

FILMPROD 106: Image and Sound

Do two-minute YouTube videos with millions of hits, six second vines, or interactive storytelling modules alter our understanding of film structure? Even while these emerging forms stretch the boundaries of what it means to be a filmmaker, many of the core principles of visual storytelling remain unchanged. In this hands-on film production class, students will learn filmmaking fundamentals, and explore how to apply those principles when creating film projects using tools such as iPhones, consumer cameras, and FCP X. Within the course, we will also explore how new tools and technologies offer opportunities for innovation in aesthetic and narrative forms.
