The first project of the FILMMAKING 101 course will begin on September 1, 2011.

The project will be a conceptual film based on the theme of shadows.  Shadows are an important element as to how we see objects.  They add form and shape and relief to our images.  Since film images are largely 2-D, filmmakers rely on shadows to help separate objects and create a sense of depth to their pictures.  Shadows are also used to build drama and mystery in films.  Sometimes the images themselves are in their own shadow or are party concealed by shadow.

This project will serve two purposes:

1) to encourage discovery.

2) to demonstrate film’s unique shadow characteristics.

Kodak’s 7213 200T Vision3 negative film stock will be used for the project.
