Creating a video is an artistic expression of your passion. And who doesn't want their videos to look great and engage their audiences? Geared toward the novice, this course will introduce you to the basics of planning for your video (how to create a script, a storyboard, and an execution plan) and shooting your video, including lighting, sound, and composition of a shot. Using DaVinci Resolve, a freely available nonlinear editor that is used extensively in the film and television industry, we will learn editing best practices—not just how to execute the techniques, but also how to use them for maximum impact. Real-world filmmaking topics, such as how transitions are used in movies and documentaries, will also be covered. Students can work with their own footage or use sample footage provided by the instructor. By the end of the course, you will have created a short video and published it online.

Students can use any camera that shoots video (e.g., smartphone, digital camera, tablet, or video camera). Students must have a Windows or Mac computer for coursework.
