COMM 2221 Digital Media Field Production (Fall/Spring: 3 )


Course Description

With the ubiquitous nature of video streaming on desktops, mobile phones and tablets, the influence of video storytelling has never been greater or more pervasive—and the demand for skilled digital storytellers to fill those increasingly ubiquitous screens is stronger than ever. This course offers professional guidance and hands-on experience to develop the skills, techniques and disciplines necessary for the creation of digital media produced in the field. Students will write and produce their own video programs, becoming familiar with all aspects of production and post production, including producing, performing, directing, single-camera shooting, sound recording, and location lighting, as well as editing, digital effects, and graphics. In the process, students will develop a discerning eye for what makes an effective, professional, aesthetically pleasing video production, while they build a portfolio that can used during job or graduate program interviews.
