Film 1: Image & Sound

This class covers fundamental aesthetic and technical principals of film production. Introductory skills in lighting, shooting, editing, and sound will be taught in conjunction with a critical and theoretical foundation of the moving image. Field trips and guest artists will give students the opportunity to see contemporary film arts as they are realized in a variety of platforms including dramatic, installation, documentary, and internet-based projects. Critical analysis of these forms will be explored through a series of student productions throughout the semester.
