In this course, you will work with a professional production team and your classmates to create an epic superhero video. On day one, you will learn the basics of filmmaking from pre- to post-production, and you’ll get an inside look at how the video production process works. The class will split into three teams and create stories, storyboards, and scripts to prepare for our video shoot. On day two, you will be introduced to your production-day cameras, lights, and audio gear, and you will learn how to set up and operate this equipment. We will discuss techniques and best practices, and prepare you for our production-day shoot. Then comes our full-day field shoot. On site, each team will bring its story to life and produce its own video. You and your classmates will operate cameras, lights, and audio as well as direct talent and collaborate as a team to solve production problems. Finally, on day three of our class sessions, we will finalize our superhero videos, focusing on editing, music, graphic elements, storytelling, and post-production. This course is intended for the novice or intermediate videographer who wants to understand what it takes to produce a professional video from start to finish.

Video production equipment will be provided in class. Students will edit their videos in two groups using two provided iMac Pro computers loaded with Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects.
