This video production course is a follow-up to the basic unit, Collaborations in Multimedia I, offered each fall. Students dive deeper into the technical, practical, and aesthetic considerations of video capture, audio capture, visual storytelling, and editing. We will explore sound design, editing theory, camera movement, and more. We will discuss the finer points of shooting, lighting, and editing talking head interviews.

Over the course of the term students will work on a series of projects with various focuses, including a culminating film. There will be screenings, critiques, and in-depth discussion.

We will also discuss many of the practicalities of doing professional client work. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate – Students who wish to take this course should have a basic technical understanding of storytelling with video, and/or have taken Collaborations in Multimedia I
