Course Description:
Advanced Video Production is a project-based, year–long course. Students learn more advanced composition and will learn to integrate narrative, audio and visual elements into a series of production assignments. The purpose of Advanced Video Production is to develop a deeper understanding of how this medium can both reflect and affect cultural values, awareness, and visual literacy, and to draw students into a deeper artistic involvement with the process of creating videos, understanding and utilizing the technical knowledge, skills, tools, and concepts within the context of aesthetic, and art form, as well as to serve as the school’s in-house production company. Students in this course typically serve as leaders of the broadcast component of the class as executive producers. While this class meets daily Monday-Thursday, additional work time will be required as well as some before/after school meetings in order to complete projects.
