Digital Video Production

Digital Video Production is a combination of two college courses. Videography (the first semester course) offers an introduction to the principles and techniques of video production, including camera operation, basic script writing, lighting, sound and basic digital editing. Detailed examination of the pre-production, production, and post-production processes, as well as aesthetics, will be included.  In the second part of the class (Digital Video Editing) students continue to practice the three elements of filmmaking: pre-production, production, and post-production; but this time 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. Both 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 Video Communication Using Adobe Premiere Pro.
