FVID-390 Producing for Film

3 Credits

This course prepares students for the challenges of producing the senior thesis project, as well as for the realities of filmmaking outside of the classroom environment. Each student assumes the role of a producer and throughout the semester develops a short film project, working with a director to take idea from initial pitch to a completed 3 to 5 minute narrative film. Students learn how to break down their creative into a logistical reality and gain an understanding of copyright, releases, permits, insurance and working with talent unions.
