Motion Picture Fundamentals is a hands-on introduction to key photgraphic concepts and the core concepts of self-expression with moving images. Students shootphotographs, digital video and motion picture film to learn the basic principles and techniques of light, composition, camerawork, editing and storytelling. All equipment is provided, including 35mm still cameras, mini-DV video cameras, super-8 film cameras and digital workstations with Apple’s Final Cut editing program. Those unfamiliar with Mac OS should consider taking “Introduction to Digital Editing” prior to or concurrent with this course. Students pay for film and lab costs. Grading is based on student projects and written exams. In addition to tuition, a $70 course fee is charged.
