The course led by Sanborn, “How to Make a Film,” teaches students the basic tools and approaches for film production with digital media through hands-on studio work, screenings, critical readings, and group critiques. Friedrich’s “Documentary Filmmaking” course introduces students to documentary film production using digital video with an emphasis on the practical challenges of working in the real world. In Friedrich’s other course, “Narrative Filmmaking: Working from the Script,” students were given a segment of a script and were asked to interpret that text as creatively as possible, in whatever style they felt represented their individual visions as filmmakers.

Both Sanborn and Friedrich are award-winning and highly prolific filmmakers themselves.

The students whose video work will be shown at this screening include: Robia Amjad ’18, Annie Chen ’15, Richard Cheng ’15, Gabriella Chu ’18, Graham Cousins ’17, Alex Ford ’17, Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda ’15, Taylor Jones ’18, Van Kluytenaar (GS Architecture), Mouse Lee ’17, Eliot Linton ’15, Adam Locher ’17, Emma Michalak ’17, Olamide Oladosu ’15, Chanyoung Park ’17, Julian Perez ’18, Pat Rooney ’17, Lance Rutkin ’17, Hawa Sako ’15, Grayson Shepperd ’16, Malcolm Steinberg ’17, Wilglory Tanjong ’18, Jack Thornton ’15, Roxana Turcanu ’16, and Najia Zahir ’15.
