This course allows students to develop their advanced video making skills. Students create one video project over the course of one academic year (two semesters). During the first semester (Video Thesis I) students prepare scripts and budgets and do all of the preproduction for their project. Beyond writing and planning, the student is responsible for doing all principal photography and syncing and assembling all material by the last class. Extensive independent production is required. The instructors serve primarily as advisors. Students should bring a first draft of a script to the first class. All equipment is provided but the students pay for their own production expenses. Grading is based on the quality of the student’s production work. In addition to tuition, a $70 course fee is charged.

(Note This class is taught as a combined section with Film Thesis I.)
