Students will gain a solid foundation in the basics of storytelling with video and multimedia. Lectures, demonstrations and assignments will cover key technical concepts of video capture, audio capture, editing, as well as storytelling technique and style. Composition of shot, audio acquisition, story structure, and the interview process will all be covered.
The landscape of digital media and the outlets through which we can deliver content and tell stories are increasingly expansive. In this course, students gain the ability to confidently use media capture devices and image making to meet the demands of the 21st century world. This 10-week immersion course will engage students in the many facets and possibilities of visual storytelling with accessible camera systems and tools.
By the end of term students will feel comfortable with video capture, audio capture, editing, and utilizing these skills to create short visual pieces.
The class meets weekly on Thursdays from 9:00am-5:00pm.
