This course will introduce the language of filmmaking and develop the theoretical knowledge and practical skills students need to explore the field of Digital Filmmaking. Students will learn about the interaction of form and content through a series of practical exercises, analysis of film and class critiques of their work. The practical exercises are designed to incorporate new skills in each project culminating with a final project that will incorporate all the stages of filmmaking from initial idea to finished product. In addition to develop technical skills through a series of film analysis, lectures, readings and class discussions students will learn about the history and new trends in digital cinema and the impact that technological, political and social changes have in it. This theoretical understanding will further develop their film language and enable them to apply it in their own work. The weekly classes are divided into several sections: Theory/Aesthetics, Technique, Practical Exercises and Evaluation. This course is designed to emphasize critical thinking, creativity, initiative, expression of ideas, technique development and a committed and disciplined way of working. All of these qualities are extremely important in the exciting but also demanding field of filmmaking.
