Camera and Sound Workshop – 6 Sessions, Starting 1/29/22

​“The eye sees but the ear imagines.” This course will explore everything that filmmaker Robert Bresson meant with that famous statement. We will learn what it takes to record moving images and sounds that tell engaging stories and stimulate the imagination.

We will cover the aesthetic and technical skills needed to construct scenes and stories visually and aurally – whatever genre of filmmaking you are interested in. The language and techniques of camera and sound work will be presented, exercised, and evaluated in terms of their aesthetic quality, editability and impact on story.
