This course introduces students to the fundamentals of using their Digital SLR Camera to capture video and create multimedia projects. The course provides students with a basic understanding of editing footage and audio to their vision. The course includes story boarding, shooting, lighting, recording audio and finishing projects using current video and audio editing software. As an introduction course we will cover the many types of equipment video productions use: audio recorders, microphones, tripods, lights, rigs and more. Students will become familiar with editing software interfaces and gain an understanding of how to take their project from camera to editing and then out to the public. We will explore blending still imagery with audio to create multimedia projects including, stop motion and time-lapse techniques.
