Digital Video Production is a dynamic course designed to immerse students in the art and technology of video production. Through a project-based approach, students will learn essential skills in story development, scripting, cinematography, and post-production. The course prioritizes hands-on learning, enabling students to engage directly with smartphone cameras and free editing software to create their own video projects, such as short films, documentaries, and commercials. As they progress, students will explore various roles within a production team, from director to editor, gaining a comprehensive understanding of the filmmaking process.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
