A hands-on introduction to the principles and techniques of digital-video production. Learn to light, compose, and shoot video; and explore the logic of editing. The course engages students in an analytic consideration of basic cinematic syntax and will provide you with an opportunity for individual experimentation and practice.
Each class will be divided between lectures, technical demos, and in-class work. The overall objective is to familiarize students with the vocabulary, grammar, genres, and techniques involved in basic video production so that they can begin to produce their own videos or increase their skill level. Both individual and group work is involved. A classroom atmosphere that is respectful, challenging, inclusive, and fun is assured. Readings, Quizzes, Short exercises and a Final Project, Presentations and Discussions will all be part of the curriculum.
