In just six weeks learn how to combine the different elements of documentary storytelling and create in-depth multimedia pieces. Understand how to develop, create, and design multimedia pieces that showcase a deep understanding of audio, DSLR capture, smart phone capture, and photography.
Each week focuses on different aspects of multimedia storytelling through technical lectures and demonstrations. Introductions are made to audio and video gathering equipment with Canon 5D Mark III and smart phones, and the editing processes using Adobe CC software. Work collaboratively and independently, utilizing these skills in short, in-class exercises as well as stories on the topics of your own choosing.
We will have discussions about how to shape a story and explore the different web applications in which final work will be presented. A working knowledge of digital photography should be had upon entering the class.
Throughout the six weeks we will work in the classroom and in the field to connect with the local community and begin developing unique stories that will be pursued in-depth.
