To realize an artistic vision in film, the filmmaker needs a thorough understanding of the technology, process, and tools of filmmaking. In this hands-on course, students explore advanced concepts and techniques in film and digital media production through in-class assignments and exercises evolving into increasingly complex collaborative projects. The class covers a range of topics, including operation of advanced 16mm film and HD digital cameras, film stocks and video formats, the structure of a film crew and the responsibilities of its members, lenses and lighting equipment, shooting exteriors and interiors, gripping, production design, field sound recording, preproduction planning and breakdowns, film and HD workflows, and the collaborative process. Working as a team, students set up and shoot several scenes in class and two scenes on location using sync-sound film and HD cameras and rotating crew positions. The class screens and reviews the scenes afterward. Students hone their skills and work collaboratively to master various aspects of film production, gaining the technical knowledge necessary to successfully execute advanced film and video projects.
