Course Outcomes

Refining Media Directing Skills

This course is designed to help students in focusing and refining their media directing skills aswell as applying producorial skills in an advanced production setting. Film and video production can be a costly enterprise. It is hoped that students unable to afford advanced production projects will not be denied the opportunity of developing advanced directing skills. It is further hoped that students hired to direct projects professionally will be able to distinguish themselves as directors by understanding a variety of approaches and the tools available to realize a concept.

The course intends to help students utilize the tools of direction – contrasted with the duties of production – to more clearly understand the director's craft as storyteller.
