THTR/COMM 207: Introduction to Lighting Design & Art Direction for Film & Video

This course provides an introduction to the practical, technical, and aesthetic components of art direction and lighting design for film and video. The aesthetics and practice of lighting design are studied with reference to script breakdown and analysis, research, color theory, and concept development. Students will develop the ability to synthesize the intellectual and intuitive work required to create a visual theatrical experience based on a written text. Students will explore how to choose visual images to inspire design ideas, analyze spatial requirements and solutions, develop color palettes, and work with basic design concepts. Additional lab hours are required to complete class assignments.
