MPFV323 Experiments in Film Narrative 3 cr.


This course is an intensive film and video production class for the junior film students to find and realize their own personal voices through moving image. Students explore traditional narrative frameworks such as character, conflict, script structure, and narrative voice. Students expand upon these frameworks and push the boundaries of conventional film narrative. The class touches upon all stages of preproduction, including production design, storyboards, shot design, script breakdown, preparing the shot list, casting, location scouting, and production scheduling. Classes include technical workshops, in depth analysis, viewing and critique. Students direct their own scripts and work in crews to produce each other’s films.
