Berkshire Community College in collaboration with the Berkshire Film and Media Collaborative will offer Beginning Film Production I starting Sept. 20.
The workshop will provide a foundation in the principles, techniques and equipment involved in video production, from script to final edit. Students will write, produce, direct and edit individual short projects and participate in group projects. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to understand the basics of narrative, scripting, camera operation, direction, lighting, sound and non-linear editing. They will also demonstrate proficiency in camera operation including framing, exposure, focus and movement as well as competency in non-linear editing software/and use the terminology of video production/post-production competently.
Students will need a digital camera, which can be anything from a smart phone to a camcorder to a DSLR. Those who do not have access to a camera may discuss alternatives with the instructor. PC's will be used, however, students may also use their own computers and software.
The workshop will meet a total of eight times on Tuesdays starting Sept. 20 to Nov. 8 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and will be held in Room 210 in the Koussevitzky Arts Center at BCC’s Main Campus in Pittsfield. The cost is $320.
