This is not the current course catalog

Class Details

The course will explore the process by which the visual language of a film or television show is realized. How production and costume designers, hair and make-up artists, cinematographers, and other members of the creative team arrive at a unified vision which defines the look of any production. The course will be both analytical – dissecting the visual choices made by each member of the creative team on an array films or television shows – and practical – each group of students being assigned an unproduced screenplay or television script for which they will first have to define the visual language. And then create a document to illustrate that vision. Where is the story set? Where do the characters live? What do their houses or apartments look like? How do they dress, wear their hair? What is the overall color palette? How is the show lit? How is it shot? The techniques the students choose to create that document is up to them. It can be references from other films or television shows, images gleaned from other media, original drawings, or computer-generated images, either still or moving. A combination of some or all. Whatever they feel best conveys their vision of how to bring what’s “on the page” to the screen.
