Cinematography: Crafting the Moving Image


REVISED

Summer 2014 quarter

Taught by

What makes a beautiful image?  What images best tell a story?  What separates phone vids from Iron Man ?

We will watch films, seminar around films, and create our own moving images.  We will cover the art, technology and technique of the moving image.  We will study how lighting, composition, and camera placement all affect and reflect the story, characters and landscapes that we capture.  We will spend a significant amount of time working with cameras and watching our own creations as a group, plus a few field trips to Seattle and/or Portland to look at the tools and resources used by professional image creators.
