COMM 390-001Syllabus & Outline, Fall 06 2. Course Description: Directing 390-01 is an artistic journey designed to give students a basic understanding of the techniques of the director’s process and how specific techniques can be used to create individual works such as documentaries as a means of personal expression. Rather than describing professional practices in the detached fashion of survey or lecture courses in mass communication, this course intends to talk directly to you the student, teaching you principles that will be applied immediately by you in lab work. This curriculum is an opportunity for you the student to learn the process of visual thinking and visual production. This hands-on study of directing allows you the student to learn about and experience how the television and film director is involved in almost all of the varied and complex phases of television or motion picture production. This course is a combination of lecture, discussion, electronic communication, planning, group collaboration, and individual production. A detailed, edited documentary project and an across-the-curriculum work of directing students from the Acting for the Camera class in a provided Soap Opera script are the hands- on lab work for the course. Outcomes: Students will plan and produce an individual documentary production and direct a Soap Opera scene. Students will complete thorough summaries of reading. Students will present an examination of a director and his/her work and present a well-documented 20-page paper on the same director.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
