COM 215 - Intermediate Filmmaking


This concentrated, advanced-level course examines digital filmmaking as a cinematic form of visual storytelling for the 21st Century.  Students will be introduced to the art of filmmaking using inexpensive Digital Video as the medium.  Each student will write, shoot, and edit a high production value short film using the school's digital cameras and editing equipment.  The primary emphasis is telling a story visually by producing, directing, and supervising cinematography, lighting, grip, editing, and sound recording.  Also, students will learn all of the basic positions and responsibilities on a professional independent film set.  Prior experience in visual production or photography is helpful but not required.
