This class introduces students to the making of 16mm sound films,
including the recording and editing of sync sound.
The various stages of production are explored in lectures, lab
exercises, and through discussions. Pairs of students will produce
and direct a short sync sound exercise and a final sound film
project. You will learn how to use a sync sound camera, a digital
tape recorder, a flatbed editor, and a digital editing system, and
you will participate as a crewmember in the other students'
Aside from these more technical subjects, we will also address
questions of scriptwriting, directing, acting, and the like. We
will watch and discuss a great variety of short films made by
students and filmmakers from around the world. Each student will
research a production topic of his/her choice and present the
findings to the class.
