Lesley University, Cambridge, MA                                                                                (2019 - 2023)

 

Digital Filmmaking Techniques I (IDFLM 1210)

Working on a wide variety of projects, students build skills through hands-on practice, demonstrations and assignments that explore the many ways the camera and lens can tell a visual story. New techniques and equipment are introduced each week to build the students’ vocabulary with the camera and filmmaking toolset.

Concepts of Cinema II (IDFLM 1240)

This course is the second core seminar of the foundation year. Working on short-form projects, students will present projects for discussion and critique. This course emphasizes concepts and themes that students will develop through their assignments, culminating in a final project that showcases their skills and ideas.

 

Production Studio (IDFLM 2300)

The creation of the 3-dimensional moving image artist: Students are immersed in learning the construction of their online identity, the process of writing and speaking about themselves in the application process for jobs in media, as well as networking with professionals in the New England film industry. They also maintain on-set identity through active participation in critical live productions during the semester at Lesley via Senior Thesis productions, and leave the semester prepared to articulate who they are in a multi-faceted way as working artists.

 

Interdisciplinary Installation (IDFLM 2340)

This course introduces students to concepts of time, space and interdisciplinary practice, and encourages experimentation with non-linear forms of creation. Focusing on ways in which time impacts artistic experience foregrounded in contemporary installation art, students use video, sound art, and performance in combination with 2D and 3D artistic practices. Through lectures and demonstrations students learn new ways to approach their ideas and create art projects that reflect a multimedia approach grounded in contemporary art and interdisciplinary installation.
 

Sophomore Seminar I: Concepts (IDFLM 2410)

In this class students are immersed in the art and craft of analyzing compelling stories for the screen and installation space by understanding artistic expression through the umbrella of three primary genres: Narrative, Documentary, and Experimental Filmmaking. In each case, we ask two primary questions: How did film take this particular path in each stage of production, and how did it then evolve over time from historical to contemporary contexts?
 

Sophomore Seminar II: Projects (IDFLM 2420)

Students will gain knowledge of and experience with multiple families of story conception, development, structure, and media choices, while gaining a thorough understanding of linear and non-linear storytelling. They will grasp the critique of “story” as it pertains to genre, visual language and editing, and how this more fluid understanding has an impact on their own creative work. They will understand why some stories best exist in certain mediums, and engage in critical thought with regards to that interrogation process.

Junior Studio (IDFLM 3430)

The Junior Studio explores all elements of the pre-production and production processes for the development and execution of a narrative film. This course serves as the theoretical basis for students’ work in Production & Management, and is aligned to support the success of the production of an original short, narrative film. Students work both independently and collaboratively to develop a script, participate as part of a production team and edit a film. Each step of these processes is covered in depth, including: devising detailed budgets and production plans, practices associated with developing a working script and pitching a film, identifying and securing crew members and locations, roles and responsibilities on the set, and casting and working with actors. The course will culminate in finished films and a thorough evaluation of the process.

 

Thesis Seminar I (IDFLM 4210)

Throughout the semester, students focus on the pre-production and production of their final project, built for submission to the festival circuit by the following semester’s end. Emphasis is given to refining cinematic language, storytelling, preparing the shooting script, creating storyboards, location scouting, casting, rehearsal, and directing in dramatic or documentary settings. Paperwork and preliminary photography will be evaluated by review at the end of the semester.

 

Thesis Seminar II (IDFLM 4220)

This final semester is dedicated to editing and refining the student film. The same group will reassemble and new duties are assigned for each member of the team. Students additionally create a strategic plan of execution for film festivals. Various marketplaces (festivals, exhibitions) are introduced, and students create posters, websites, and strong marketing materials geared towards festival submission and the exhibition circuit.

 

Experimental Filmmaking (IDFLM 3888)

This course explores the overlap and intersection of genre, and how structural differences in filmmaking can combine and be isolated to create striking, exploratory works. Projects are designed to encourage exploration and individual thought in the filmmaking process.

Film As Installation (IDFLM 3888-02)

Students will learn the artistic relationship between space and the physicality of mediums, as they explore modes of expression in different areas of exhibition. They will create their own projects and learn to critique moving images that have been expressed on and in forms outside of the theatrical screen. Additionally, students will be an engaged participant in the spring Lunder Arts Center Exhibition “Film As Monument.”
