So you want to be a filmmaker? We want to hear your thoughts about film and storytelling. Please submit two short assignments:
- Movie Critique: Write a professional critique (300-500 words) about any feature length film, describing the film's strengths and weaknesses and assessing its overall entertainment value. You should also include various elements of filmmaking such as direction, acting, lighting, editing, effects. We're interested in seeing your level of awareness for what makes a film work (or not). Please note, movie critiques will not be returned.
- Storyboard: Dream up any film idea and develop a storyboard. You may also include dialogue and direction. Don't worry about your drawing skills, you can use storyboard software or stick figures. We're looking to see your ability for putting single visual frames into a sequence that tells a story. Storyboards will be returned during the third week of classes
