Learn the fundamentals of sync-sound moving image production, including cinematography, lighting, sound recording, and production logistics. With an emphasis on dramatic visual storytelling, students will produce scenes from existing scripts, rotating the positions of director of photography, assistant camera, gaffer, mixer, and boom operator for each script. Additionally, directing, editing, and color grading will be covered, and students will be responsible for casting, location scouting, and set-building in order to successfully produce each scene. Students will leave the course knowing the interworkings of a film crew, the operation of digital cinema technologies, and have a better understanding of visual and aural storytelling aesthetics and techniques. Enroll Info: When offered during the fall or spring semester, students need to submit an advanced production application to be considered for the course. When offered during the summer, no application is required.
