Peak’s 2nd year film scholars have completed their first project of the year.
This project focused on artistic interpretation of another’s art, and it covered a production technique called “running and gunning." “Running and Gunning” essentially refers to a project with a quick deadline and almost no time for preproduction. The scholars had three days to produce their 2-5 minute movie based on the poem “the Wasteland” by T.S. Eliot.
by T.S. Eliot
Aprilis the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow,feeding
A little life with dried tubers.
Summer surprised us, coming over the Starnbergersee
Witha shower of rain; we stopped in the colonnade,
And went on in sunlight, into the Hofgarten,
And drank coffee, and talked for an hour.

Scholars had to producea 2-5 minute video to satisfy a client's video-production needs.
Scholars worked ingroups of 4. They first wrote a film treatment. They then turnedthat treatment into a screenplay using Final Draft. Next, each group hadto storyboard their scripts using Storyboard Quick 6.
Scholars then usedcamcorders to shoot their projects and edited them using Final Cut Pro X. All music and sound effects where designed using Garageband.
