Elliot T. Montague (Section 01)
(Offered as ARHA 221 and FAMS 221) For January 2021. This introductory course is designed for students with no prior experience in video production. The aim is both technical and creative. We will begin with the literal foundation of the moving image—the frame—before moving through shot and scene construction, lighting, sound-image concepts, and final edit. In addition to regular online screenings, the class will consist of daily Zoom sessions led by the professor, including lectures on filmmaking techniques, film discussions, and critiques of footage and various cuts. Each student will work on a series of individual production exercises, a group project and a final video assignment.
This class will be taught virtually and is open to Five College students - camera packages will be mailed to any student living off campus.
Limited to 12 students with instructor's permission. January semester: Professor Levine. Spring semester: Visiting Lecturer Montague
If Overenrolled: Priority will be given to FAMS and ARHA majors, then attention will be given to achieving a mix of majors and Five College participation.
