An introduction to basic video production concepts, ideas, and techniques. A hands-on course–students actively participate in video field production. Students work on their projects individually and/or in small groups as required. Class covers instruction in the use of all college video production equipment, including cameras, VTRs, switchers, editors, and post-production equipment; an analytical survey of production styles and formats, such as ENG and EFP production, documentary, performance (music, theater, film), training, advertising and sports; and fundamental instructional design, production outlining, scriptwriting, narrative structures, and post-production techniques. By the course's end, each student should be able to produce one finished program of about ten minutes in length using a variety of production techniques.
