Drexel is excited to offer its first study abroad opportunity in Aruba! This two-week Intermediate Production course is designed to give students the opportunity to study and shoot within a foreign culture, to allow them to experience a world whose socio-economic background is quite distinct from their own, and to provide the challenge of capturing some aspect of it within a documentary film. It will be run in partnership with EICTV (Escuela International de Cine y Television), the pre-eminent film school for all of Latin America. Students will experience Aruba's rich and vibrant cultural history, learn about its history of cinema and produce a documentary film.
As this is an intermediate course, Documentary Studies (FMTV 250) is a pre-requisite; this can be waived but only with the express permission of the professor. It is assumed that students will have developed the basic skills required to make a meaningful documentary, from research to conception with an understanding of documentary approaches, to field production and post-production. During production, camera work and sound will be captured by student crews, working with professional Aruban Producers, who are multi-lingual. Importantly, crews will also be comprised of other students from Latin American and the Caribbean, providing a rich multi-cultural learning experience.
For more information, please attend the Info Session on Wednesday, October 19th at 6pm, in UCross 028 or e-mail Gerry Hooper at
