Immerse yourself in producing, shooting, and editing digital videos


Can you hear Sundance calling? In this course, you'll explore the many facets of planning and shooting digital videos. You'll learn how to control white balance, aperture, and shutter speed, to get high quality images. You'll explore the different types of shots and camera motion techniques used by the pros and learn how to do location scouting, plan props, wardrobe, and sets, and work with talent.

 

Course lectures challenge you to think about different storytelling conventions in narrative and documentary movie-making and address the fundamentals of sound recording. You'll script and storyboard short movie sequences and develop an understanding of the various roles in the video post-production process.

 

Course projects include a video camera workout, a camera perspective study, a shot analysis, studies in shot types and camera motion, an instructional video, a silent movie, a soundtrack recording, and a final project where you recreate a short scene from a famous movie.

Important: Students will need access to a digital video camera and ability to connect it to a computer to capture footage.

 

 

The course includes full directions for Adobe Premiere Pro, but students can use a non-linear editing program of their choice
