Digital Filmmaking

Learn the process of creating a short film with a digital single-lens reflex camera camera. Over the course of this eight-week class, you’ll gain exposure to different forms of digital narrative storytelling. We’ll watch short films and clips by key artists, then explore techniques, from interviewing to lighting, audio, filming and camera technique. We’ll engage in group exercises and will have the opportunity to experience each aspect of the process, resulting in a completed group film. Expect a mixture of critique, hands-on skill building and technical development.
