Video Production is a hands-on, project-based course intended to give students an introduction to the various aspects of video production. Students will learn the basics of video production such as story development, storyboarding, filming, lighting, audio and post-production. Students will also develop a bi-monthly live broadcast focused on school events with highlights on community, local and national news. Students will collect and edit footage to include in school productions and live broadcasts. Students will work in groups that will specialize in different aspects of production and broadcast. This class is limited to 20 students.
Video Production II is a continuation of Video Production I. In this second course, students will be challenged to produce a series of projects ranging from Public Service Announcements to Short Films. Students will build upon the skills they learned in the first semester to produce more polished projects. We will add elements to enhance the aesthetics of videos produced through stronger pre-production. Students will continue to participate in the weekly, morning news broadcasts as well as develop and produce segments for the broadcast. This class will meet 80 minutes per week for the full year along with some independent study time. It is limited to 20 students.
