This course is designed to develop proficiency in the standard procedures of filmmaking and the use of equipment. Students participate in shooting two 16mm films, editing and building soundtracks. Basic aspects of cinematography, lighting, sound and editing are covered, including the use of 16mm cameras, sound equipment and digital editing software (Avid Media Composer). Student projects are viewed and critiqued in class. Outside work is necessary for planning, shooting and editing. All equipment is provided, but students pay for their own film and lab expenses. Grading is based on each student’s films, exams on technical basics and class participation. In addition to tuition, a $70 course fee is charged.
