Film Production: Sight and Sound


This program is a full-time, 12-18 unit program.

The Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at Tisch School of the Arts educates students in the art, craft, and technology of film, television, video, animation, and sound production. The program offers intensive, hands-on production experience coupled with a broad exposure to the liberal arts.

Sight and Sound: Filmmaking
6 units

Every student will conceive, produce, direct and edit five short projects (3 silent and 2 with sound) with digital filmmaking technology. Working in crews of four, students will be exposed to a variety of specific assignments in visual storytelling that feature a broad spectrum of technical, aesthetic, craft and logistical problems to be solved. Collaborating with other students through rotating crew positions will be a central focus of all production work. Lectures, labs, critiques, technical seminars, screenings and written production books will be an important component of this class. All student work is screened and discussed in class. Students should not schedule any other course on the same days as Sight & Sound: Filmmaking.
