Overview 

This four-week, for-credit program is designed to challenge students by exploring storytelling principles through the lens of filmmaking. Students will study current works in film across genres and identify / discuss meaning and theoretical approaches to filmmaking. Students can anticipate learning about all aspects of the filmmaking process from idea to screen and get a glimpse into the various disciplines one can study in a college-level fine arts or humanities program. Students will have the opportunity to develop critical thinking and conceptual creativity as they share in discussions of examples of philosophy and storytelling in everyday life. Finally, students will engage in creating their own films, culminating with a final cut screening and awards ceremony open to family and friends. 
 
Students will take the following courses:
 
ART 3612C: Beginning Video, Animation, and Digital Arts (3 credits)
This course offers a unique opportunity for artists to pursue a cutting-edge approach to video, sound, animation and electronic media. Early lessons focus on learning the technical and conceptual skills needed to produce work. Students will use various digital production hardware and software as tools of artistic invention. In conjunction, we examine how the predominant modes of motion pictures function in our daily lives and explore alternative production practices.
