COMM 3506 - Pre-Production Planning for Film and Video


3 cr. 3 hr. Day course offered every Semester.

This course considers the intent and purpose of a message as a first step in media production. The social and cultural implications of media storytelling are examined. The course focuses on clearly defining message content, intent and audience as a precursor to an exploration of how particular film and video techniques communicate and are interpreted. Teams will subsequently develop the pre-production planning needed for a short film or video work, including idea development, script treatments, story development, script writing, rewriting, storyboarding, script breakdown, production scheduling and resource planning.

Note: The department recommends that this course be taken at the same time as either COMM 3520 , COMM 3521  or COMM 3710 . Prerequisite(s): COMM 3505
