IDFLM 1210 Digital Filmmaking Techniques I

The most important tool in digital filmmaking is the camera, and this required foundation course focuses intensively on camera technique. Working on a wide variety of projects, students build their skills through hands-on practice, demonstrations and assignments that explore the many ways the camera and lens can tell a visual story. Each week the class builds on these skills, introducing basic lighting and editing techniques to enhance the complexity of their filmmaking. Students will shoot footage in a wide variety of ways, using new techniques each week to build their skills and vocabulary with the camera.
