Moving off the page: Running with story from text

In this course, students will explore the power of movement to carry meaning in film. Students will develop several silent film projects over the course of the semester. The primary activity will be learning to direct non-verbal action. We will approach the conversion of dialogue and text into motion using traditional and experimental tactics. Students will have experience directing performers in body language including facial expressions, posture, gesture, stance, full-bodied motion and more.
