IDFLM 1200 Storyteller: Intro to Digital Filmmaking

This course provides a basic understanding of how films are made and produced. Course instruction will provide technical training in film production and post-production software. Students will develop a foundation of skills and sensibilities specific to cinematography. Technical exercises, critiques of student work, and discussions of narrative film, art cinema, documentary, and experimental works--all created by artists--will inform each student's personal vision and craft. Elements of composition, lighting, editing, and sound will be presented in class as students work towards the creation of a final short film to be screened at the end of the semester critique. This is an introductory course for non-majors.
