MPFV244 Imaginative Pre-Production 3 cr.

Pre-Production is an art form unto itself whether the end goal is clarifying the essence of a project, or clearly communicating the director’s vision to the cast and crew. In this multi-media production course we will explore a wide range of pre-visualization masterpieces through the techniques of artists who are as varied as Alfred Hitchcock, Matthew Barney, Robert Smithson, Cindy Sherman and Agnes Martin. We’ll delve into multiple types of storyboards, from hand-drawn to photo realistic to computer generated, create relational lists, mash-up visual source collages, shoot real-time video reenactments, and examine possibilities for timing, lighting and color palettes. Students will compile an image source bank in order to develop their personal pre-productive style and complete multiple projects.
