Digital Video Production

Description:

The Digital Video Production curriculum prepares students as entry-level professionals in the digital video production field. Classroom lecture and practical assignments in the use of state-of-the-art digital technology lead to the development of technical and aesthetic skills required for success in the digital video production field. Students gain practical experience by creating programs for the College's CCPTV educational broadcast channel as part of their course work. Students completing this program will be prepared to work as videographers, audio technicians, video editors, producers, directors and related occupational roles.

Extensive computer activities and location and studio production are required for some courses in this curriculum. Students are encouraged to develop artistic appreciation and imagination in their work. Upper-level courses emphasize advanced technical and creative skills and professional practices. Students exit this program with a digital portfolio of their work to aid in obtaining employment in the digital video field.

Student Learning Outcomes:

Upon completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate proficiency in the operation of digital video cameras, lighting equipment for location and studio production, audio for digital video production, and digital video editing hardware and software.
  • Evaluate technical and aesthetic qualities of digital video productions in the context of historical and contemporary trends
  • Employ current business practices as applied to the practice of digital video production
