This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of digital video production. The class will explore the process of expressing ideas in an audio-visual medium from the concept stage through post- production. Each student will acquire hands-on experience in directing, shooting, sound design, and editing on Final Cut Pro; examples of narrative, documentary, and experimental work will be screened and discussed in class.

There will be three short exercises:

n Audio Self-Portrait n Continuity exercise—a story is conceptualized and executed in-camera with no additional editing.

n Final Project—working in pairs, students will create a visual essay that explores a process, place, person, or theme.

This course is truly INTENSIVE and requires a significant amount of work (including nights and weekends) outside of class. There are daily deadlines for submission of creative work.
