Digital video covers the use of digital video cameras, computers, lighting, and related equipment. Classes take students through the pre-production, production and post-production process:
- In pre-production, students plan, script and storyboard their ideas.
- Students learn to use a digital video camera to collect images that communicate a story.
- Camera technique and controls, balanced with good composition, are combined with sound capture and reproduction.
- During post-production, students become comfortable with basic computer editing operations. The rough video footage is captured and edited using non-linear editing software.
Student projects begin by isolating elements of production and design, then progressing to short, group video projects, and finally to producing longer narrative films.
