Description

Every film worth remembering had a poster that was meant to create excitement as part of an advertising campaign. This course is all about the movie poster: its history in the world of cinema, and how to create one of your very own! You'll take on the role of graphic designer as you learn about vector drawing while using the most popular digital tool for poster design, Adobe Illustrator. As you become more confident with the design workflow and look for the best combination of type and picture, your posters become more complex. By the end of the course, you will have created four original posters, selecting a favorite project for a portfolio-quality print.

Description

Before a movie "moves" it must be planned and drawn to accompany the screenplay. Enter the storyboard: akin to a cinematic comic book, it has been become an art form unto itself. Students gain inspiration with examples of storyboards from the films of Hitchcock, Spielberg and Christopher Nolan, and then move on to draw their own storyboards. Students learn movie production terminology with an emphasis on camera vocabulary as they adapt scenes for the proper format. Drawing efficiently is a focus as students learn skills that will help them make better movies in the future.

Description

Lighting the video image has never been easy, but there are dependable strategies that the low-budget filmmaker can use that will look like a million dollars to the audience. In addition to understanding lighting technology, it is important to know how to design a three-dimensional space for two-dimensional presentation. This intensive workshop covers it all: a tutorial in lighting hardware (meters, lights, doors, scrims and reflectors) framed by discussions of lighting philosophy and aesthetic. A practical demonstration allows participants to work with equipment in a hands-on simulation of the best that is possible with guerilla lighting scenarios.
