We live in the next level here. TV2 looks to improve upon the foundation of what we study, learn, and put into practice in TV1, and build substantially from a technical and narrative standpoint. We also explore different styles of video throughout the year such as documentary filmmaking and marketing and advertising (to name a few). Below are examples of work where students have dedicated themselves to be the best filmmakers they can be.
The scene work project is TV's first attempt at shooting using DSLR cameras. No longer a point shoot project students are provided a short script to use as the basis for mastering the camera settings, and getting perfect exposure, focus, and color balance.
The trailer project is one that starts the year shaking the dust off from the long summer. IT also is a great example of how to favor style over substance. Students are tasked with creating an original trailer based off a fictional film...that doesn't exist. It encourages frequent shot locations, coverage, close-ups, action, and a fast=paced edit; all things that are sorely lacking from TV1. It's also an exercise in exploiting genre conventions to make sure people know what they are watching.
