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.
