Description:
Students are guided in the production (shooting) of their own narrative, documentary, or experimental films. 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 all aspects of the production process as well as some ongoing (from Film 3) aspects of pre-production including casting, production design, scheduling, and securing a crew as well as production challenges like working with actors, communicating with a crew, sticking to a budget and adhering to a restricted shooting schedule. Students should expect to incur some personal expenses beyond the course tuition. Prerequisites: Filmmaking Studio 1, Film 2, and Film 3. 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.
