FILM-101S Introduction to Video
This elective is an introduction to the craft and aesthetic of video. The course explores perception, motion, composition, sequence, framing, editing, sound, and other means with the aim of developing the language and grammar of video. These methods are then put into practice with actual video-making exercises and creative projects. The student develops both a technical competence and an appreciation of the unique character and potential of the moving picture image. Pre-production planning and post-production digital editing will be introduced. The course utilizes lightweight cameras. Students who own mini-digital video camcorders are invited to bring them to class.
