Happy Thanksgiving 2019

Students in MACS 323: Cinematography & Sound Design, taught by media and cinema studies lecturer Victor Font, created this video for Thanksgiving. In it, they imagine what series of events led up to the famous Normal Rockwell painting Freedom from Want (see below). 

Through making this video, students learned all production processes: scriptwriting, storyboarding, preproduction, production design, crew roles, location and studio shooting, sound, and editing. 

The inspiration for the video was this Norman Rockwell painting:
