Students are guided in shooting their own narrative, documentary, or experimental films using HD digital video or 16mm film. All students in the class crew on one another's productions as a way of practicing the teamwork that is part of filmmaking and in order to maximize the learning experience. The course covers preproduction (budgeting, casting, scheduling, locations, permits, releases, film stocks), directing (including script analysis and rehearsals), camera and lighting (with professional equipment like the Arriflex SR camera and Mole-Richardson and Lowel lights), sound (use of professional microphones and digital sound recorders), and editing (synching dailies and an editing approach). Students should expect to incur some personal expenses beyond the course tuition. Prerequisites: Filmmaking Studio 1 and Film 3 or permission of the instructor. Because of space limitations, enrollment priority is given to degree and film certificate students. Bring a seven- to ten-page script to the first session. This course was formerly called Film 3: Advanced Film Production. If you have taken that course, do not take this one; it is the same course.
