  • Media Studies
The course expands beyond the core concepts and skills of producing and editing audio and video. Students learn professional production processes and techniques in both media, delving further into the technical aspects of production and post-production. Aesthetic instruction addresses the many ways the resulting project may be conceived stylistically and to solve particular communication issues. Exploring audio, microphone techniques, recording, editing and mixing skills are taught. Exploring video, instruction includes lighting, framing, camera movement, recording and digital editing techniques. The combination of the two media provides a production context for project work and prepares students with the means and ideas to make time-based work in more advanced courses. NOTE: We recommend that students take the Cinematic Aesthetics Proseminar (NMDS 5028) before, or concurrently with Media Practices: Digital Cinema if they wish to pursue the Digital Cinema Production course sequence. Please contact instructor for permission.
