AI in filmmaking is already making huge leaps, learn how to utilize the tools you need to grow along side AI in filmmaking. This course is for anyone interested in AI and film/video, from first-time content makers to professional producers—so no prior experience is necessary. Students will immerse themselves in the evolving relationship between AI and film and video production first by creating a short trailer for a hypothetical film, and then by initiating a new piece of narrative, expository, and/or experimental film/video (depending on your own interests). In the process, we’ll examine the enormous ramifications of generative AI technology for our own lives and society at large. 

With this synchronous and asynchronous course format, students will be able to use the time between in person meetings to create, share, and receive faculty feedback and reviews from peers. This course is over 8 weeks, meeting in person bi-weekly in order to allow students to absorb the knowledge and create content to be reviewed.
