Advanced Camera Work: First Person Narrative - Advanced Digital Video Production PBL Project
Students create a narrative story from first person point-of-view, focusing on camera work to define perspective and experience.
Students make a 2 - 5 minute video based on common story prompts that tells a story from a specific vantage point. The finished video will include demonstration of advanced camera work, including consideration of composition, perspectives, various shots and angles, and point-of-view. They should keep in mind their peer population as the target audience.
