In the Digital Video Program you’ll develop studio, technical, and professional skills and build a strong and marketable portfolio with an emphasis in digital video production,editing and visual effects post-production. It is a balance of both the technical and artistic aspects of digital filmmaking.
Digital video productions are no longer limited to broadcast television and in-house corporate video audiences.Venues now include cell phones, iPods, online video and high-definition feature films. Integrated “desktop” solutions that utilize advancing digital technology, make producing motion media easier and less expensive than traditional film and television studios of the past.
The curriculum is based on professional standards drawn from the practices of:
- Advertising agencies
- Design studios
- Broadcast media
- Independent production companies
- In-house or corporate media departments
