LALW234 Immersive Media: Storytelling 3cr

This course focuses on the art of telling a story
with immersive media.  Students will have the
opportunity to learn and practice the skills
necessary to create an engaging audio-visual work
for a full dome projection system.  The students
will be working in collaboration with the Charles
Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Science in
Boston. Students will explore and research topics
in art and scienceand communicate them through
storytelling and scriptwriting.  Over the course
of the semester, students may concentrate their
engagement on different facets of the production
(conceptual development, research, storyboarding,
script writing, sound, video/photography,
post-production, public relations, project
management). The class will share readings,
discussions and examples of the
interrelationships of art, science, and
contemporary culture. Three production groups
will produce 6-10 minute shorts specific to their
particular topic of choice. These three pieces
will be woven together for a final show open to
the public at the Hayden Planetarium. A
co-requisite with SIM course MPSM355. Students
are required to register for both courses.
