CSS 235 INTRO TO CINEMA PRODUCTION-Introduction to Cinema Production presents the basic concepts, techniques, and processes of cinema production. Throughout the course the student will learn how to write, storyboard, shoot, and edit an electronic motion picture. Digital post production processes will be introduced. Narrative, documentary, and experimental theories will be discussed, and the students will participate in directing and producing a final short film for a public screening.

CSS 391 FILM PRACTICUM-Film Practicum is an intensive, cerebral and physical exercise in the various approaches to filmmaking and videography. This course takes both conventional and experimental paths to help students expand their creative horizons. Students should expect to be “in production” constantly during the semester.

CSS 496 SENIOR THESIS-The Senior Thesis seminar provides advanced CSS students with an opportunity to collectively reexamine the practical, theoretical, and historical bases of their screen education while at work on their particular, culminating projects. Participants explore recent scholarship on the state of the discipline and directions for research and creative work.
