Module Description

This module provides students with the primary skills to form a rudimentary understanding of the practical requirements of video production. With a focus on idea development, students will learn to use digital video cameras and basic non-linear digital video editing programmes to explore story construction and screen narration. Students will develop a critical appreciation of storytelling in a practical workshop environment and through a series of problem-solving exercises. Students are required to attend a minimum of 75% of the module classes. Attendance will be recorded.

Module Aims

This module aims to provide the student with an understanding of the basic skills necessary to work in a video production environment. The student will be required to reason and solve production issues in their allocated roles. They will be expected to take responsibility for their position and to critically assess their contribution to the overall production. Students will acquire an understanding of framing, camera movement, elementary lighting and sound, as well as editing and post-production practices. This module provides a foundation knowledge that will be built upon in subsequent years of the programme.
