Last week on campus, students had the chance to investigate their own artistic practice, guided by four masters in their craft:
Allen Coulter, director of iconic TV masterpieces like The Sopranos, Sex and the City, and Boardwalk Empire, launched students into their first week of the two-week Directing Master Class, building a foundation for understanding what it means to direct film and television.
Documentarian Adam Harrison Levy led his students through the art of Conducting the Interview in just one short, intensive week. Each member of the group chose their own interview subject and crafted short interview films that were heartfelt, thoughtful, and at times even jarring.
Jean Miele, a celebrated photographer himself, guided his class of photographic students along a journey of self-reflection and expression in Finding Your Photographic Voice. Among other adventures, the group took a field trip to Peter Ralston’s gallery in Rockport to hear from the photographer about his own photographic journey. (By the way, don’t miss Gino’s upcoming online workshop Almost to “WOW!” – Adobe Lightroom Workshop, starting September 13th!)
And Richard Goodman returned to campus for his beloved writing workshop, Writing Your Life: A Workshop in Creative Memoir. Said one audience member of the Friday night show, “Students’ writing explored an understanding of human subtleties and vulnerabilities, an illustrated sense of place, and non-superfluous narrative.”
