We live in a time of unprecedented access to both making and consuming media. Has this digital age democratized who we see behind and in front of the camera? Does this open up pathways to civic participation and artistic expression? Or will these rapid technological changes just fade into history as just another phase of cinema?
The Image and Sound class offered at Stanford University will explore these questions in the context of a hands-on film production class. You will learn the fundamentals of visual storytelling that remain largely unchanged over the last century despite the digital revolution, all while exploring new digital tools such as iPhones, DSLR cameras, and FCP X. Within the course, you will also explore how new tools and technologies offer opportunities for innovation in aesthetic and narrative forms. The course gives students the experience of the filmmaking process as a whole.
