The module draws on the practical skills of students and augments them with the competencies required to produce a video. Assessment is divided into a first video based on a set text and then a final video on a subject of the student groups' choosing that is shown at the end of the Spring Term.
The module is based in the department’s edit suite and includes instruction in use of camcorders and training in video editing using Adobe Premiere Pro. Instruction is also provided in audio editing, colour grading using Speedgrade and motion graphics and compositing using After Effects. Works have previously embraced stop-frame animation and multimedia installations and students are encouraged to engage creatively with the possibilities afforded by the moving image. This is an option choice that does demand considerable commitment beyond the allotted course hours. Please note that the video projects will be group works in order to acommodate as many students as is practicable.
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
• Understand the pre-requisites of taking an idea and developing it for film
• Operate a video camera and associated kit in the realisation of their script
• Edit and finalise their footage for presentation
