First Person Narrative is a filmmaking-based production class focused on the art and craft of the personal video essay. The personal video essay is work that has been directly experienced, processed, re-imagined, and revealed by the storyteller. Students will be encouraged to identify, research and explore subject matter that has some actual core basis in her/his/their lives. Story content can range from an actual event, family story or myth, political or social perspective on the world that reflects and asserts the filmmaker's unique point of view. This class will support and foster work that is made with courage, conviction, and pride. Students will learn a variety of foundational skills in story development, podcasting, animation, archival based acquisition, portrait photography and videography. The First Person form is a compelling, exciting, and emerging domain for creative filmmakers.
