HACC - Broadcast Communications
PADE - Cinematography & Film/Video Production
Over the last two decades Cable TV and Radio has transitioned into "New Media". People are no longer gathering around the old fat back tube TVs like they did in the past to gather information. News is INSTANT now, at a push of a button information can be delivered directly to what ever device that is infront of the user. As this transformation continues to evolve legacy media into modern media we must prepare for the future of what will broadcast communications look like while respecting and understanding where the occupation has come from. What is the shot, and framing is becoming abstract as we look towards the future of frameless Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. However the central premise of story telling remains.
This will be a hands-on class developing content from conception, to live production, to post production. By the end of their experience Students will have learned:
Photography and still camera operation
Cinematography and Video Camera Operation
Cinematic shots and techniques
Graphic Design (photoshop)
Video Production (Premier)
Audio Production (Audition)
Computer Graphics Operation
Live Event Production
Emerging Technologies (VR/AR) Drones
This is a professional business course and you are young adults, you are expected to conduct yourself as business professionals, with respect for others and pride in your work. Production is a collaborative effort requiring a team to achieve a shared goal. Thus, it’s important we practice this understanding and let it reflect in our actions. This is imperative to fostering a community that nourishes each other’s creativity.
Grades will be primarily project and performance based ultimately building to a final senior portfolio. Testing will be on a bi weekly to monthly basis focused on key terminologies learned. Class Attendance, Participation, and Professionalism will also be factored into final grades.
Our studio has a variety of task specific duties, from Technical Director controlling the Tricaster (video switcher), to the Audio Engineer mixing controlling sound levels, to Computer Graphic artists utilizing photoshop and other CG programs, to Video Editors inside of the Adobe Premier suite, to podcast and radio broadcast inside of our sound studio. By the time you graduate from this program it is expected for everyone to be comfortable in all of the above skills and vocations.
