DescriptionWith the ascendency of today's smartphone technologies, the quality and reliability of the photographed image and recorded sound is equal to if not superior to many DSLR cameras. This course will provide an opportunity for students to make a variety of films in the dramatic narrative, documentary, or experimental traditions primarily utilizing their smartphones or in combination with related analogue and digital technologies. In turn, we will also explore the interface between the still and moving image so readily available with these portable, in your pocket recorders as well as creating what some refer to as a "new notion of the cinematic." Geared for students with prior filmmaking experience.
