Description:
To realize an artistic vision in film requires an in-depth understanding of the technology, process, and tools. In this workshop, students explore advanced concepts and techniques in film and digital media production through a series of exercises that evolve into increasingly complex collaborative projects. Topics include operation of advanced HD digital cameras, video formats and compression, the structure of a film crew and the responsibilities of its members, lenses and lighting equipment, shooting exteriors and interiors, gripping, production design, field sound recording, pre-production planning and breakdowns, HD workflows, and the collaborative process. Working as a team, students set up and shoot several scenes in class and two scenes on location, rotating crew positions. The scenes are then screened and critiqued by the class. Students hone their skills and work collaboratively to master the technical knowledge necessary to execute professional film and video projects. Prerequisite: Filmmaking Studio 1 or Digital Video Production, or equivalent experience and permission of the instructor. This course was formerly called Filmmaking Lab: Art, Technology, and Tools. Do not take this course if you have previously taken Filmmaking Lab; it is the same course.
