"Producing Commercials: The Art of Short Form Storytelling" will focus on the intersection of film production and advertising, following the standards and requirements of the commercial film and media industry, this course will challenge and engage students by encouraging them to adopt a new, fundamental approach to their filmmaking technique. In Film Production I class, the students take on the role of director orchestrating all executive decisions and control over their film portfolio. Now that students have honed their craft, this course is designed with the intention of producing work with a specific target and client’s expectations in mind. The goal of this course is for students to discover the balance between filmmaking as a personal, creative art and as a valuable tool of communication with a target audience. As film students, you have invariably begun to master creating your vision. Now, instead of asking, “What do I want to see on screen?" you will ask, "How do I effectively reach my audience; and how will they think, feel, and react to my movie?" Finally, in order to facilitate their role in the job market, students should leave this course with the goal of establishing a company and the knowledge of producing competitive products in line with the industry standards.
