SAC 290 is a fast-paced, hands-on survey course in media production introducing multi-camera television, digital video, and 16mm film. Students will work in crews to complete short projects and, in the process, gain first-hand experience in strategies and techniques of scripting and pre-production, production, and post-production. The aim of the course is to master a basic understanding of the aesthetics and processes of film, video, and television production. Similarities and differences of the various media/approaches will be examined.
Please be aware that shooting and editing the two single-camera projects will require substantial time commitment outside of regular class time. If you have a heavy class-load and/or work schedule, or have extracurricular commitments that require a great deal of time this would not be a good term for you to take this course.

Grades for the course will be determined based on TV studio directing and crew, single camera video project (including pre-production work, production paper), film project (including pre-production work, production paper), generative assignments (storyboard, script marking, and observing composition), in-class early mid-term "quiz," and participation/collegial attitude.
