Digital Cinema is ideal if you want to gain professional-level skills in the use of digital filmmaking, sound, motion, and sequence-generated content.
In this course you will learn to meet standards for work in digital cinema, documentary, installation, or experimental video work. Digital Cinema emphasizes the importance of the image and visual storytelling within time-based work, incorporating a solid foundation in photographic essentials. Your focus will be on creative thinking and problem solving as you work on both individual and group projects. In addition, the class will focus on the fundamental rules of composition, contemporary concepts, and examples of historical and contemporary video works of art. Students will engage in a collaborative studio environment; contribute to and receive constructive critique; and establish critical thinking skills while developing personal projects.
No previous video experience required. It is strongly recommended that students bring their own digital SLR camera with video functions and an external hard drive or large USB flash drive (64GB) for digital file storage.
