Students learn the essentials of shooting a five- to seven-minute documentary. They learn how to develop an idea, research the topic, interview subjects, and create a visual strategy and master basic skills of location scouting, lighting, and shooting. They also explore the use of still photographs, artwork, and stock footage. Students may work individually or in groups and by the end of the term should have a working rough cut or fine cut edited with Final Cut Pro. Students have access to New School digital video cameras but must have a firewire drive. (3 credits) CRN: 3483
