Tutor: Colette Lewis

This course is an introduction to the art of digital video production across a range of moving image practices. The course is designed to facilitate a hands-on approach in mastering the basic skills and techniques required to proficiently shoot, edit, and share video content. Students are introduced to the use of camcorders and DSLR cameras for shooting video, smartphone apps and portable audio recorders for recording sound, and video editing techniques and software. Principles of the moving image language will be explored through storyboarding and camerawork. It is expected that students will work outside of class hours to create video content to develop a short video project for group discussion and analysis. 


Please note that students are required to have their own digital camera for this course.  


Students have an opportunity to submit their work for assessment (80% attendance is required to be eligible for assessment) should they wish to gain the MTU Single Module Certification for this course.
