Levels: Elective – 4 credits (Beginner, Intermediate)
In the 2nd Term of Collaborations in Multimedia, we will build upon the foundational skills and knowledge developed during Semester One. Now that students have gained a comfortable footing in the basics of capturing and editing video and audio, we will begin to delve deeper into both the technical and theoretical side of the mediums.
We will introduce a series of new tools including studio lights, camera accessories and support systems, and wireless lavalier microphones. We will light subjects, explore camera movement, and practice working together as a small production crew. We will delve deeper into editing, begin to discuss style and technique, as well as introduce additional facets of post-production such as motion graphics, color correction, and Adobe Premiere’s multitude of new and useful tools.
We will also begin to discuss in more detail, the best ways to market yourself as both a photographer and a Multimedia Storyteller, and how this well-rounded set of skills can set you apart from media artists with a sole specialty.
Minimum enrollment of 5 students required.
