MEDIA ARTS CAREERS: Film Production

Lesson Overview

There are many jobs that go under the heading of FILMMAKER...learn about writing, planning, directing, editing, set decoration, costuming, filming "on location", and the other exciting challenges that await the creative spirit of filming a story or documentary . From the very small film crew of 1 person, to a film crew of hundreds, there are many ways to make a film that will successfully impact an audience.

In this lesson you will learn some of the differences between using FILM  &  VIDEO, by hearing the positives and negatives of using the 2 technologies.  This 1:1 lesson will be informational, but an actual  "film making project" is provided in the Project Based Lesson  in this unit as part of  the VIDEO PRODUCTION lesson. However, if you are seriously interested in producing films, this lesson is a great overview to educate you about film and making films.  Through the collection of video interviews, you will learn an enormous amount about the planning, expense, and NON-GLAMOROUS hardships that can be a large part of filmmaking...but also, you'll hear  the passion that so many in the industry have for this profession!
