Introduction to Filmmaking Workshop: Shooting and Postproduction

Through hands-on production of digital film projects, this course introduces the language of visual storytelling and presents an overview of the technology involved in digital filmmaking. Working in small production crews, students write, produce, direct, and edit their film projects, and in so doing gain increased confidence with professional practices. Students shoot in high definition without sync sound, and then advance into editing with Premiere Pro. Lectures will focus on screen direction, the 180-degree rule, the master and coverage approach to shooting, and an introduction to the organizational structure of a professional cinematic production. During postproduction, students work individually in computer labs and are guided through a workflow to bring their short film project to completion.
