Digital Video Arts
Digital Video Arts 1 focuses on the creative process of video production, from brainstorming and pre-production, through production and post-production (editing) to exhibition and review. Students will explore the varying processes for documentary, short fiction and receive an introduction to live production.

Students form teams to produce video projects in collaboration. Together they generate ideas for video projects and produce them. They write short screenplays, sketch storyboards and lighting diagrams, produce and shoot video, record sound, design graphics, and edit short documentary and fiction videos. Students will reflect upon and revise their work as needed, and learn how to promote and market their productions.

The skills students develop through this course will be applied to the creation of DVD projects and television programming for Internet, mobile devices, broadcast and cable distribution. Upon successful completion of the course students will have a portfolio of video productions they have collaboratively helped to create.
