This intermediate level production course places the interview as the locus of inquiry in order to explore, respond to, express, the ways in which social issues such as racism, economic inequality, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, bullying, hate speech and hate crimes, disability, incarceration, to name a few, affect us. In Interview Practices, Dialogue and Conversation in Studio Video Production, students create, research and analyze the process of producing scripted, story-based, socially engaged, short non-fiction and experimental videos. The course examines elements of performance for the camera, studio and in the field shooting, various interview and editing techniques as well as the form, history, and function of the non-fiction genre in the U.S. The course is ideal for students who have completed other production courses and wish to further expand their skills and create a production portfolio. The first part of the course will be studying components of studio-based production with hands-on in class short production exercises including the use of the green screen and three camera set up. In the process, students will understand the various production roles of a studio shoot. In the remaining weeks, students will produce a short interview based documentary, a conversation or a dialogue scene. This will be a demanding production course that will require intense work outside class, pre-production and organizational skills. Enrolled students and top 5 waitlist students who DO NOT attend the first class session risk losing their place on the class roster.
