Students recording a scene for a short film.
Digital Video Arts
Digital Video Arts 2 covers advanced levels of technical production, industry standards and crew management. Teamwork and group dynamics are emphasized in the beginning of the semester as students are placed into production crews, and take turns acting in the capacities of Director, Producer, Cameraperson, Editor, etc. Students will have practice in writing scripts, treatments for marketing, copy, critical analysis, and self-critiques of their own work.

Students will have an opportunity to specialize in a job position and develop their own style with the creation of an artistic piece. From concept through scripting, production, and finally post-production, students will gain an intimate understanding of the requirements necessary for narrative and documentary production as well as live television production.

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.

Prerequisite: Completion of Digital Video Arts 1 or equivalent course with a grade of C or better.
