If you want to make and edit your own independent film, this is the course for you. Whether your goal is to create promotional videos for your professional life, or to produce a short film as an artistic expression of your passion, you want your videos to look great and engage your audience. Geared toward the novice, this course will introduce you to the basics of planning (how to create a script, a storyboard, and an execution plan for your video) and shooting (including lighting, sound, and composition of a shot). We will then learn editing best practices—not just how to execute the techniques, but how to use them for maximum impact. This course will cover DaVinci Resolve, a freely available nonlinear editor that is used extensively in the film and television industry. Students can work with their own footage or use sample footage provided by the instructor. By the end of the course, you will have created a short video and published it online.
Students can use any camera that shoots video (e.g., smartphone, digital camera, tablet, or video camera) and must have a computer (Windows or Mac).
