Introduction to Video Production and Literacy (MSP 107)

Students are introduced to the theory and operation of analog and digital cameras, elementary lighting and basic audio equipment, common professional video production, and filmmaking. After instructors explain the theory of production equipment, students complete assignments in basic equipment operation. The fundamentals of visual storytelling are emphasized. Through demonstrations and hands-on experience, students apply the basics of lighting, exposure, composition, sequencing, and non-linear editing techniques used by professionals in visual narrative storytelling. The students develop ideas learned in MSP 111 (Mass Media and Society) and apply skills to capture quality images and sound using digital video equipment. Using these skills, they learn to tell stories using video and sound. Projects developed are distributed over student and other community-based media. This course is subject to a course fee.
