i would like to solicit the list's help with a new course undertaking
my institution is discussing the possibility of introducing a basic
course that we talk about as "intro to filmmaking" even though we
would be limited to using video as the medium for the course . . . the
course would be a liberal arts elective, aimed at a largely business
oriented student population, and would be analogous to the
introductory courses we already offer in fiction writing, poetry writing,
and play writing . . .but before we open a search for someone to
teach the course we need to project what would be involved . . .
although we have offered film analysis courses for years, none of
us has any experience in filmmaking . . .so, could someone who does
provide some basic info on -- at a minimum -- what kinds of facilties would
be needed, what equipment each student would have to have, and how
much of an expenditure would be involved in offering such a course?
other relevant information would also be appreciated, especially if
any of you have experience in offering such courses within very strict
budgetary constraints . . .
thanks very much
