Description

FTVM 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 groups to complete short digital video 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 explore the aesthetics and processes of film, video, and television production. Similarities and differences of the various media/approaches will be explored.

Assessment will be based on short assignments related to production — storyboard and shooting plans and group production projects using digital media and film (45%), TV studio directing projects (20%), 3 in-class quizzes (15%), reading responses (10%), and attendance and participation in good spirit (10%).

Intended Audience:

FTVM undergraduates and other undergraduates interested in media production.
