Keith Downey: 2006-07 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

The Grant assisted in the production of a digital film. Four scenes were shot on Otis’ property. To film on the campus, Otis College of Art and Design required additional production insurance and a location fee of $4500.00 dollars. To assist this project, the college deferred its location fee. The Faculty Development Grant was used to help offset our cost for the Short Term Production Insurance.

My goal was to explore the emerging paradigm of digital movie production. Back in the 1980s, when I started in the film industry, the primary medium for picture acquisition was 35mm film. Sound was recorded separately on 1/4” audiotape. With the exception of one project, all my professional work, for films, television and commercials, were initially captured on film stock.
