DIY Video

Before you leap you have to learn how to walk. The production of a short film/video is often considered a typical first stage for beginning filmmakers (or as a viable form of storytelling and personal expression). This workshop will look at how to develop a story, a shot list and a storyboard. It will experiment with directing, cinematography and screenwriting. It will work toward building a bigger and better film language and screen grammar.

The course introduces students to many of the methods, tools and techniques of independent short film/video production. This course will explore dramatic, documentary and experimental approaches to working with moving images in film and video. Students will be exposed to how cinema is used as a field of creative expression and will be encouraged to explore their ideas. Using discussions, class critiques, class demonstrations, movie excerpts and outside class assignments students will learn about the process of moving forward with their own film production plans.
