Spring 2016, THTR 290-01:On Camera: Acting for Success in the Selfie World (4). In this course, students learn to become comfortable in front of the lens. Beginning with on-camera interviews and progressing to scenes acted in front of the camera, students hone their on-camera technique and understanding of the advantages and limitations of the camera with an emphasis on a strong creative process and a relaxed, confident on-camera presence. Students also gain an understanding of basic camera moves, lighting, and simple editing which allow them to produce their own original short scene as part of their out-of-class requirement. (HA) Mish and Aleksander. Spring 2016 only Planned Offering: Offered fall or winter when interest is expressed and departmental resources permit.
