In this course, students engage fully with the production process by planning and implementing production on a short project, originating on film or digital video. Projects may range from traditional fiction narratives to more experimental or non-classical approaches. The emphasis here is on collaboration as students must crew on each other's productions in order to practice the cooperation necessary in filmmaking and maximize the learning experience. Topics include: pre-production (budgeting, casting, scheduling, locations, permits, releases, film stocks), advanced directing (including script analysis and rehearsals), advanced camera and lighting (with professional equipment like the Arriflex SR camera, the Panasonic DVX 100B and Mole-Richardson and Lowel lights), sound (use of professional microphones and equipment like the DAT recorder), and editing (synching dailies and an editing approach). Students should expect to incur additional expenses. Projects developed for this course may be proposed as thesis projects. Open only to Film Form students.
