Video Production

Video Production students will have the opportunity to learn how to produce a movie from the idea stage to a finished product.  Video Production 1A will focus on three major themes.  The  first is Editing where student pairs will learn and practice using “Final Cut Pro” and "Adobe Premier" digital editing software, which are becoming movie industry standards. The second theme is Short Film Exercises where students will work in small groups of 5-8 to create very short movies to practice the basics of visual storytelling. The third component is Writing the Screenplay . Students will begin with pre-writing exercises and finally complete a short-subject screenplay. The second semester Video Production 1B, will involve selecting several screenplays to be produced by the entire class, with every student filling a role as either cast or crew.  Video Production is a two-semester class that fulfills the UC/CSU, A-G “Visual and Performing Arts” requirement.
