Spring 2019

Taught By: Pacho Velez

Section: BX

CRN: 5496

Credits: 4

For students who have already mastered the basics of screen production work, this intermediate course focuses on creative non-fiction production (documentary, doc-fiction hybrids, and experimental narrative). Through production exercises, writing assignments, and classroom critique, the class guides students through the making of a 6-10 minute moving-image work. In the process, the class demands that students leave behind their prejudices about what constitutes a movie – how it should look and sound and, by extension, what is “correct." Instead, the class asks students to explore cinematic storytelling's artistic potential. To quote Baudelaire, “always be a poet, even in prose.” Prerequisites for this course: Introduction to Editing, Introduction to Cinematography. [Track S]
