Presented from a design perspective, this course offers a unique way for students to hone their storytelling skills.

Beginning with a brief survey of film history, we will go on to watch several films in class. After each viewing, we will deconstruct the film to discover it’s most effective uses of conventional and unconventional communication.

As the secrets of successful, cinematic storytelling are revealed, the student’s tool kit will grow. The final project will utilize these tools to build a one minute film.
