DIRECTING: NARRATIVE FEATURE PRODUCTION. For students who have mastered the basics of screen production work, this course advances to the next level of filmmaking practice, while also providing the student with experience in feature production beyond the classroom. This is a new course, being piloted as a means by which to provide students with experience in narrative filmmaking in a multi-dimensional way. As such, the course will have non-traditional flexibility and hybrid meeting structures. There is also an audition process to enter the class by permission of the Professor, interested students should email Professor Talia Lugacy, lugacyt@newschool.edu with any questions. Students will develop their narrative directorial skills with a rotation of projects, as well as be given an assigned crew role on an independent feature film in pre-production or production, for which they will be credited on that film. It is strongly recommended that students complete both Editing and Cinematography, or have demonstrably commensurate experience, before applying for this course. NOTE: This course is open to Juniors and Seniors in Screen Studies and Culture & Media only. [Track S]
