This course, intended for students who will continue to the Advanced Projects in Film/Video II course in spring 2020, will support advanced students in planning, pre-production, and early production for more complex, larger-scale, longer-duration, self-directed video projects. In general, this course is intended and used by seventh-term students with a Plan concentration in Film/Video, but exceptions may be made with the permission of the instructor. Students will learn how to use treatments, shooting scripts, storyboards, shot lists, budgets and diagrams to plan narrative, documentary, experimental and installation projects. They will present and workshop ideas for projects, critique planning documents and test footage or rushes, and have individual meetings with the instructor. Guests will come in to walk us through their planning processes for projects in various disciplines. 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. Pre-requisite: Intermediate Video or permission of the instructor. Can also be taken with Intermediate Video as a co-requisite by permission.
Corequisites: Intermediate Video if not already taken
