Digital Video Production


In the Digital Video Editing I course students are introduced to digital non-linear video editing. Students will practice the three elements of filmmaking: pre-production, production, and post-production with an emphasis on post-production techniques including media management, editing tools, titles, motion control, transitions, and special effects. Students will make a variety of films in this class and are encouraged to enter a local film festival.

Is a logical “next step,”  Adobe After Effects I provides the fundamental techniques for creating digital motion graphics such as 2D animations, animated logos, video graphics, etc and applies those to video products. Classes cover relevant tools and techniques as well as industry standards, delivery methods and output.

At the end of this course, students are given the opportunity to take the Adobe Certified Associate exam in Visual Communication Using Adobe Premiere Pro.

* This CDC class is offered with concurrent credit through Front Range Community College.  Corresponding FRCC courses are MGD164: Digital Video Editing and MGD165: After Effects.
