Do you have an interest in telling a story on film/video? Would you like to learn how to incorporate media or videos into your field of study? This introductory course in idea development and writing for video/media projects is a hands-on approach for students interested in learning the terminology, language and skills needed to develop a short moving image project. Students will screen and analyze films, work on developing their own short projects, and write a proposal for a video project (non-fiction, fiction, experimental). This 5-day intensive course is a perfect opportunity for Evergreen students and community members to learn new skills that can support a current video project or the development of a new project for use in a future course, parallel ILC, or outside work. The course runs First Session during weeks 3 and 4, and can be combined with Video Production Field Skills: Intensive.
Specific skills students will learn include: idea development, ethical considerations in film making, how to pitch an idea, proposal writing, and fundraising strategies.
No knowledge of film/video is required, but those with prior film making experience, or who already have ideas they would like to develop, are encouraged to take the course which can be scaled to their skill level.
