This course will teach you how to create, plan, organize, shoot, and edit a professional video or film, and is for students at all levels. In this hands-on course, you will learn concept development, scripting, storyboarding, planning, best practices in lighting a shot and using natural light, and best practices in capturing quality audio and framing artful shots. We will also discuss basic editing, organization, and workflow processes. You will gain inside knowledge of the production process, including different types of equipment, strategies, organizational techniques, and what happens after the filming is complete. One session will be dedicated to shooting and editing footage (a camera and a laptop computer with editing software like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker should be brought to class). No matter what your concept or project is—a music video, business video, family video, feature, or short film—you will learn the key ingredients and components that will make your final production compelling and memorable. The goal of this course is for you to walk away with the knowledge and skills to produce your own professional video or film.

Students must have a video camera and a tripod.
