Film Production

This course takes students through the entire production process, culminating in the completion of two 2 to 5 minute short digital films. Students develop knowledge in the primary disciplines: writing, producing, directing, shooting, and editing. Classes consist of lectures, demonstrations, and workshops in which students serve in a variety of creative capacities. There are three class assignments: one still assignment and two final HD assignments including scripts. Students are required to log their progress at various stages of the production process.

Students will gain a broader understanding of the film production process. This starts and ends with the creative eye. Students will train in how to turn an ordinary situation into a dramatic one worthy of being filmed. They will learn the value of preparing for every contingency. Working as a team, crew members will hold each other accountable and learn to trust one another. Finally, students will leave with the skills and confidence to prosper and thrive in today’s digital world.
