Film 1: An Introduction
Fall 2024
Taught By: John Didato
Section: A

CRN: 3142

Credits: 3

This course is an opportunity for the serious beginner to learn the fundamentals of filmmaking. Students respond to conceptual and aesthetic challenges posed broadly as problems of time, movement, space, place, and point of view that students solve in both short exercises and concentrated study. Weekly assignments, discussions, exercises, lectures, and critiques further students’ understanding of filmmaking. Consideration is given to the historical and emergent potentials of filmmaking as students become familiar with diverse modes of cinematic expression and better equipped to discover and realize their own creative voices. A range of examples are discussed and understood as responses to technical limits and possibilities as well as to social, cultural, economic, and political contexts. By the end of the course, students will have gained experience with cameras as well as sound, lighting, and editing tools that prepare them for more ambitious personal film projects at the next level of the digital production course sequence.

This course is open to BPATS BA/BS Media Studies and minor in Film Production students only. All other undergraduate students may request permission three (3) weeks before the start of the course by emailing mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu.
