Video Production

Subject Name: 
Film & Media Studies
Course Number: 
Amherst College

(Offered as ARHA 221 and FAMS 221) This introductory course is designed for students with no prior experience in video production. The aim is both technical and creative. We will begin with the literal foundation of the moving image--the frame--before moving through shot and scene construction, lighting, sound-image concepts and final edit. In addition to instruction in production equipment and facilities, the course will also explore cinematic form and structure through weekly readings, screenings and discussion. Each student will work on a series of exercises, a collaborative project and a final video assignment. There will be one 3-hour class and one film screening each week.

Limited to 12 students. Fall semester. Professor Levine.
