    Session A

    Lecture: T,W,Th 10am-1pm; Location: Online – Asynchronous Instruction 

    This course is designed to give those interested in film and media careers an introduction to the wide range of professional possibilities that exist in the Bay Area and beyond. Centered around a series of 10–12 guest lectures from working professionals, the course will give students valuable insight into the opportunities and challenges of working in the field. Guests will come from a variety of professions including: studio and independent film production, screenwriting, documentary production for film and television, animation studio production, film curation, film festival programming, and content production for AR, VR and video game platforms. With each guest visit, students will have the chance to interact directly with speakers to explore specific areas of inquiry. The course will also focus on a variety of professional development tools and strategies for getting started in film and media professions. The roster of guests will not be compromised by remote instruction, should that be necessary for this summer session, as it will provide an opportunity for the Instructor to host a wide variety of guests located outside of the Bay Area.

    *PLEASE NOTE: This course DOES NOT count for elective credit in the Film & Media major

    (This course will proceed via remote instruction during Session A)
