|WHEN TAUGHT:||Fall; Winter|
|PREREQUISITE:||Media Arts Major, TMA 473R (Fiction) or TMA 474R (Non-Fiction), Application|
|DESCRIPTION:||Final collaborative project for media students. May be narrative, nonfiction, multimedia, writing, or critical studies format.|
|COURSE OBJECTIVES:||While the course is formally completed upon delivery of a completed short film, the practice and demands of directing are emphasized more strongly than the students’ aesthetic choices. As such, knowledge derived from increased directorial experience in a practical setting is the primary objective of the course; the more subjective aspect of individual artistic taste is secondary. Student directors will complete the course having experienced the unique demands placed upon a film director throughout the course of a production.|
|TIMELINE:||In order to do a Capstone, you need to go through a pitch process. There are two different rounds of approval. The first individual pitch of an approved 7 page maximum script takes place in March and November every year. If your pitch gets through the first pitch, the second pitch takes place at the end of the first block.
A Capstone project will take 3 blocks to complete Pre-Production, Production, and Post-Production.
