Cinematography, Lighting, and Sound Production LIBA 9109

On Campus

Our Cinematography, Lighting, and Sound Production course teaches you how to tell a story visually by giving you the opportunity to make a short film. Course activities are designed to provide you with hands-on experience in the role of director of photography for your film. Develop an appreciation of visual styles by viewing the works of great cinematographers then learn to prepare your own shot lists, storyboards, and floor plans. Also receive technical guidance on using video and DSLR cameras, doing lighting set-ups, operating the boom, and doing wireless microphone recording.


You will have the most success in this course if you already have camera knowledge/experience and/or a fine arts background before you start this course.
