Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this Columbia College Chicago Catalog; however, the Catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the convenience of students. Columbia College Chicago reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules, and calendar for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change any of its policies or other provisions listed in the Catalog at any time.
Course is the first of two semesters in which students will be working collaboratively with classmates on a single project, the purpose of which is to simulate an actual production environment that they might face once having left academia. Each participant will be assigned a particular production role based on a portfolio review at the beginning of the class in which each student will be asked to share portfolio work from previous classes with the executive producer (the instructor) and fellow classmates. This first semester of pre-production includes screenplay, design of characters and backgrounds, storyboards, recording of vocal talent, and completion of a story reel.
