This advanced digital video production course explores the process of making narrative shorts. Over the semester, each student will write, pre-visualize, direct and edit one project, approximately 10 – 12 minutes in length. Each student will also act as producer for a classmate’s project.
The semester is broken into four stages – script concept/development, pre-production, production and post-production. Script development emphasizes visual storytelling, dramatic structure, character development and theme. Pre-production highlights pre-visualization strategies, script analysis, casting, rehearsing, scheduling. Production focuses on directing actors, shot choice/composition, lighting, crew management. Post focuses on editing esthetics and sound design.
By developing one project over the semester, each student has the opportunity to create a short that is technically proficient and personally meaningful.
