Film Workshop I

Subject Name: 
Humanities Arts Cultural Stu
Course Number: 
Hampshire College
This course teaches the basic skills of film production, including camera work, sound recording, editing, and preparation and completion of a finished work in film and video. Students will submit weekly written responses to theoretical and historical readings and to screenings of films and videotapes that represent a variety of aesthetic approaches to the moving image. There will be a series of filmmaking assignments culminating in an individual final project for the class. The development of personal vision will be stressed. The bulk of the work in the class will draw on the material of 16mm, through hand-processing, camera-less techniques, direct animation, and alternative approaches to image design and acquisition. Video formats plus digital image processing and non-linear editing will also be introduced. Prerequisite: 100-level course in media art. (Introduction to Media Arts, Hampshire Media Arts, or equivalent and must be completed and not concurrent with this course.)
Independent Work Lab Fee: $65 Students enrolled or the top 5 waitlist students who do not attend the first class session risk losing their place on the class roster. In this course students are expected to spend 8-10 hours weekly on preparation and work outside of class time.
