Pre-Production for Advanced Projects in Video (FV4224.02)

Mariam Ghani

This course, intended for students who will continue to the Advanced Projects course in spring 2019 with Jen Liu, will support advanced students in planning and pre-production for more complex, larger-scale, longer-duration, self-directed video projects. Students will learn how to use treatments, shooting scripts, storyboards, shot lists, and budgets to plan narrative, documentary, experimental and installation projects. They will present and workshop ideas for projects, critique planning documents, and have individual meetings with the instructor. We will also look at well-known films and videos alongside their scripts and storyboards and discuss the notion of the film maudit, while screening some films about famously difficult, embattled and unfinished productions.
