RTF 388P - Cinematography


UNIVERSITY REGISTRAR (for course times & locations)

DESCRIPTION: The class is experimental in nature with an emphasis on sharpening visual awareness through practice. We will explore the potential for visual expression in both film and digital imaging. Using a variety of film emulsions, lenses, lights, DV and film cameras, students are encouraged to think cinematically in both documentary and dramatic forms. A number of readings and exercises are assigned to increase a student's technical knowledge leading to greater creative and personal expression. The semester will begin with assignments in documentary videography and move onto narrative and experimental cinematography projects.
