Digital Media Production
This course is an introduction to digital video production. The student will learn basic camera, sound and lighting technique, as well as elementary story structure. Students will learn concepts of shot composition, shot sequences, movement, pacing and timing. They will also learn the basics of preproduction, production and postproduction. Participants will develop many basic production skills and will be introduced to conceptualizing, planning, storyboarding, directing and editing. Students will be introduced to Digital Non-Linear Editing (DNLE). Students will also learn about traditional and new distribution possibilities, including delivery to large screen, mobile devices and the internet.
While technical proficiency is important to any aspiring digital visual storyteller, even more important is the ability to express ideas clearly and creatively. Students are expected to push their creativity to develop original stories that can be expressed visually and in a short format.
