Brian C. Gonzalez, Visual artist, filmmaker, consultant
In this course students will learn essential principles of storytelling and the psychology of filmmaking, as well as core skills for lighting and camera setup. With a focus on aesthetic choices in directing, students will be encouraged to create boundary-pushing content even with the simplest of means (i.e., smartphone camera). Students will also implement their talents by shaping at-home projects on their own, with opportunities for individual mentorship, while fostering ideas for larger productions in the future.
NOTE: Students must have access to personal cameras and microphones of their choice, which can include smartphones. All students with an active registration in this online course will be given free access to the Adobe Creative Cloud. This course is fully online and offered through synchronous sessions during the listed course hours.
