Writing & Dir:Script to Screen
Fall 2024
Taught By: V Chowdhry
Section: A

CRN: 12262

Credits: 3

By focusing on directing and screenwriting, we connect project conceptualization, film aesthetics, script-breakdowns, blocking and shot-coverage to the language of editing. We examine a variety of approaches to visual storytelling through scene-based assignments, directorial exercises, as well as script and film discussions. While analyzing and applying various directing methods and techniques in order to create well-constructed and stylistically coherent projects, students develop their own films and videos. We investigate dramatic structures, character development and scene arcs in relation to mainstream narrative conventions, as well as more direct, experimental, or improvisational approaches. Emphasis is given to visualizing the script; students have the opportunity to develop and construct the style, tone and visual language of their projects, and through this process discover their own directorial voice. This class prepares students for Digital Filmmaking: Production (NMDS 5432) and Digital Filmmaking: Post-Production (NMDS 5433).

Pre-Requisite: Media Design (NMDS 5008) or instructor permission. This is a hybrid seminar/production course as may be counted as either designation toward a student's degree. Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
