Christina Roussos, Director, producer
During this course students will take their time-based or printed media project idea (short film, animation, performance, comic) from outline to prototype (script, storyboards, etc.). Through analysis of different types of media, writing exercises and peer critiques, each student will learn how to articulate the what and the why of their project to potential collaborators and supporters. Students will complete the course having produced a prototype of their project. Guest speakers will be included.
NOTE: This course is fully online and offered through a combination of synchronous as well as asynchronous lectures and discussions. Students are invited to attend regularly scheduled online sessions during the listed course hours.
