There is nothing like the look of film. Even in this age of digital imaging, the 16mm film format is still a viable option for the independent filmmaker who embraces the tradition and aesthetic quality of celluloid. The course covers the basics of 16mm camera operation and shooting techniques using the Arri-SR camera. Handling of the 16mm cameras will be extensive as students learn about and practice loading and unloading film, cleaning cameras, the different characteristics of film stocks and lenses, conducting film tests, keeping camera logs, and communicating with a film laboratory. The class will also focus on film sensitometry, lighting directing and editing as well as various aesthetic approaches specific to 16mm filmmaking. Students will produce several short double system films with non-synchronous sound.
