Image, Narrative, and Sequence
The concentration of this course is an intensive study on discussion and research of the aesthetics, techniques and problems of pre-production for digital media visual storytelling, for both linear and non-linear output. We will investigate ways in which to use more than characters to define mood and forward the narrative. We will focus on how elements such as subject/object positioning, background, props, timing, audio, camera angles, lighting, graphic design, composition of frames, and using suitable text enhance the communication of your ideas. We will hold regular presentations and critiques analyzing your composition of all visual and audio elements in progress and discuss methods in which to enhance everything to work together to tell a more complete, fully realized narrative. Emphasizing the importance of interdisciplinary experimentation, students are encouraged to pursue personal and independent expression while giving full attention to researching and developing original concepts. Offered fall and spring.
