Digital Video Production is designed to give students the opportunity to create presentations using videography – the process of recording sound and visual images on electronic media. Students develop skills in video production using the technologies of audio-video equipment and computer-based editing software. These skills are required to produce digital media projects for all areas of everyday life. Principles of video basics, DV technology, the development and creative process, editing, production, effects and presentation are stressed. Opportunities for creativity, problem solving, individual and group interaction, and decision making are incorporated.
