9 sessions: Tuesdays, October 15-December 10, 2019
This course is designed for students with little or no previous production experience and a keen interest in developing their skills in moving image arts. In addition to providing hands-on experience through production exercises and projects, the course places considerable emphasis on visual literacy and the application of film language. This includes the basics of storytelling, cinematography, lighting techniques, directing, and audio recording. Students work together to create cinematic scenes, covering the basic crew positions and having the option of acting on-camera. Basic non-linear editing with Adobe Premiere Pro CC is demonstrated and practiced to complete class projects. For the final four sessions bring a hard drive or 32GB USB flash drive, plus headphones or earbuds.
