This subject explores fundamental camera coverage techniques that build towards a comprehension of the grammar of film language. Through lectures, tutorials, assignments and in-class filming exercises students learn classical and modern camera coverage principals across a range of essential dramatic situations, such as individual and multi-player scenarios, as well as suspense, chase, sex, and violence scenes. All of this will culminate in the production of a 3-minute film.
