Abstract
The Director's Cut is a computer-based exercise that challenges students to create their own video sequence from a set of clips we provide. This involves selecting between multiple shot scales, points of view, camera angles and other aspects of cinematography that position the spectator in the screen space. Such choices influence which character the audience identifies with most strongly and represent some of the concepts introduced in film courses that students often struggle to master. We describe this work within the theoretical frames of multimodality and production based learning, offering insights into how we balance constraints and creativity as learning designers.
