In this course, students will gain hands-on experience in digital cinematography. Students will plan and practice camera techniques used for interior and exterior lighting, composition and framing, green screen techniques and other aspects of visual storytelling. Students will practice mechanical aspects of the lens: f-stops, depth of field and rack focus shots. Students will examine the works of masters such as Greg Toland, Conrad Hall, and Roger Deakins. Students may choose to produce an extended scaled project that is written, produced, directed, shot and edited in the advanced courses series.
