Filmmaking In this course students will gain a theoretical understanding of the ways moving images and sounds communicate, as well as practical experience creating time-based work. We will study examples of moving images as we use cameras, sound recorders, and non-linear editing software to produce our own series of short works. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the possibilities of the medium through experimentation, analysis, and detailed feedback while exploring different facets of cinematic communication.
This is a class that is very project heavy-- all of the assignments in this class are creative film projects. As a film major, this was really essential in learning more about camera operation with the FS5 and I felt really free to be creative in my projects. This was my second class with David and he was a fantastic professor-- I would highly recommend taking anything he teaches.
