This course covers the essentials of shooting a five- to seven-minute documentary: developing an idea, researching the topic, interviewing subjects, creating a visual strategy, and location scouting, lighting, and shooting. Creative uses of still photographs, artwork, and stock footage are also explored. Students may work individually or in groups. By the end of the term, each student or group should have a working rough cut or fine cut edited with Avid Media Composer. Students have access to New School digital video cameras, but each must bring a firewire drive.
