MDST 3300 - Directing for Motion Pictures I

In this course students will learn to develop a visually compelling cinematic language. Students will learn how to break down a script and/or concept into dramatic beats and then organize those into visual moments. Students will build the vocabulary and conceptual framework necessary to analyze and discuss shot progression, camera movement, and production practices. Students will develop their visual voice by dissecting scenes, exploring the director’s language, and participating in camera workshops. Outside film exercises are required.

Prerequisite: MDST 3150 (can also be taken as a corequisite)
