Course Description

Students will complete production and editing of a documentary short while they develop the skills needed to shoot for story and for editing. Through lectures, demonstrations, viewing film excerpts, and individual production assignments, students will develop a strong understanding of the different approaches available for documentary filmmaking as they master the technical and more subjective aspects related to the genre. Emphasis will be placed on technical proficiency, including sound, lighting, and composition, as well as on story and character development as appropriate for student projects. Much of the outside class time of this course will be on-location as students will be engaged in the production of their projects through the duration of the semester. Class critiques will be the main tool used to evaluate progress made on the productions. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: ARTM3420
