  • Overview

    This subject explores fundamental camera coverage techniques that build towards a comprehension of the grammar of film language. Through lectures, tutorials, assignments and in-class filming exercises students learn classical and modern camera coverage principals across a range of essential dramatic situations, such as individual and multi-player scenarios, as well as suspense, chase, sex, and violence scenes. All of this will culminate in the production of a 3-minute film.

    1. Apply previously learned filmmaking techniques to complete a short film.
    2. Visually express a filmic idea in a short film format.
    3. Apply camera coverage techniques to successfully convey a filmic story.
    4. Assemble and edit filmed footage into a complete short film.
    5. Identify revisions required to refine the short film from rough cut to final cut to a complete short film.
