This 12 credit certificate program will provide students with the fundamental skills of digital video production. The skills will include competence with a range of digital video cameras, microphones, basic lighting principles and non-linear editing software. In addition, students will learn the principles of visual storytelling and narrative construction. Students have the choice to explore field and studio production, though the emphasis will be on single camera video production. Finally, students will learn how to manipulate their products across a variety of media platforms, from small streaming files for the Internet to DVDs. Students will also learn the elements of communication theory in an effort to inform the practice of video production with the current theoretical trends within the communication discipline. The program is open to all graduate students within the FSU community.
