Students work on postproduction aspects of their 8-12 videos, including reediting and adding music and sound. Students explore more deeply the range of skills and techniques necessary to direct a film. They will hone their directing skills by preparing, shooting, and editing, in video, a minimum of two significant scenes from a published work. At least one of these scenes will be presented in Directing the Actor workshops. Students should be working on a first draft of a short screenplay for their second-year project.
Open only to M.F.A. candidates in Film. Prerequisites: Screenwriting II, Directing II, Directing the Actor II, and permission of the Division. See the Film MFA Program page for course information and requirements.
