Visual Storytelling

Hall Powell

4:30pm - 7:30pm

Produce videos from concept to completion, editing in Final Cut Pro X software. Previous students who have taken the course include journalists who want to up their game with structured video stories, vloggers and web series creators, filmmakers who want to create work they can submit to film festivals, a Ted Talks producer, academics who are developing new visual curricula, and political activists. We’ll also explore the crossover between fine art videos and commercial filmmaking. Hall Powell has directed, written for film and TV (NY I Love You, Law & Order, half-hour sitcom, TV movies). The course includes production breakdown preparation, editing theory, and a film history overview of directorial composition and innovation that can be applied to your work. Work together or individually to create your visual approach— we’ll cover storyboards, drawings, beat sheets and other structural tools. A final goal is the production of a polished video with a basic understanding of editing for picture with an emphasis on sound. Must have own portable external drive 1-2TB, 7200rpm to use in class and a phone camera or camera of your choice. Mac computers are available for use in class. All levels are welcome.
