Filmmaking Course Open for Community Enrollment

With the shift to Antioch College's new faculty-designed curriculum and calendar, course opportunities have opened up during winter and summer block terms. Some of these courses are available to enrolled students only, but others are available to our wider community. This November-December block, the first course of this kind available is MEDA 270-01, Special Topics in Media Arts: Storytelling for the Screen, taught by alumnus and famous filmmaker Jack Sholder ’68.

Filmmakers tell stories. In this studio intensive, we will explore the art and technique of storytelling in a compelling, coherent, and cinematic way using moving images and sound. You will learn how to do this by writing, directing, photographing, and editing a short video. The learning experience will be enhanced through discussion of storytelling technique, analysis of scenes from classic films, and supplemental reading. No technical skills or prior experience necessary. All you need are the means to capture video (camera or phone) and to edit it (dedicated or free editing software such as Premiere, iMovie, VSDC, etc.).

Storytelling for the Screen is open to the wider Dayton community for registration.
