Cinematography is the art and craft of making motion pictures by capturing a story visually. In this unit, we will explore the basics of filmmaking and editing as you produce several film shorts.
1. Final Film Project (group)
Final project time. Here's your chance to shine! Review the Final Project Outline to start your best film work! Start by filling out the Pitch A Project form for approval by your instructor.

2. Film Compilation Website (individual)
Your Filmography Site is a compilation of all your film work in this course. Your site must include all 4 of your film projects (minimum).
