COVA 23800. Lab fee $50. This intensive laboratory will explore differences between video and film, experiment with basic lighting design and set-ups, and practice field audio recording. The class will be organized around a series of shooting situations. Students will work in crews to understand modes of production. Each crew will learn to operate and maintain the Panasonic AG-DVX100 24p camera; Sachtler tripod; Arri lights, gels, diffusion, and grip equipment; and Shure mixer with Sennheiser wireless microphones. Though video or film experience is helpful, the class will be open to students who want to acquire technical knowledge of how films get made. Enrollment will be limited to 12 students who must have the consent of the instructor to register.
