About the course
The tools of filmmaking have never been more accessible. Artists, entrepreneurs, marketers, teachers, journalists, and historians—almost anyone—can now easily create compelling video advertisements or short narrative films, even when on a tight budget. All they need is a smartphone, a clear idea, and an understanding of visual storytelling. This course is designed for narrative filmmaking and will focus on the basics of visual storytelling—from composing a shot for maximum impact to creating a story that can elicit a strong emotional response. We will begin the course by learning the basics of composition and story structure, and from there proceed into planning, casting, shooting, and editing. Though the course will cover some technical aspects of video production and post-production, we will primarily concentrate on how to communicate a message in a compelling way. By the end of the course, each student will have created their own two- to three-minute video and have a clear idea of the challenges, the difficulties, and the joys involved in filmmaking—whether they plan to apply new ways of communicating visually to their work, or are simply looking to explore a new medium for self-expression.
