Cost $390 Register Now
Sessions 8
Dates September 23ľNovember 11 (Wednesday) – 6:30-9:30pm

This course is designed to expand upon the introductory course for repeat students and more advanced individuals who want to improve their skill set or learn how to add more polish and flare to their video work. We will focus more on post production in this course. Students will gain proficiency in using Premiere, After Effects, and Speedgrade, and will have an opportunity to fine tune previous projects from the intro course or their own work. We will focus heavily on color correction and using Speedgrade to add looks and color grades to your work. We will also delve further into After Effects for students interested in motion graphics and special FX. While the course won’t focus on shooting in class, there will be opportunities to work with cameras in class as well as a day with the green screen.

We will also explore the different video codecs used by DSLRs and how to properly set up these video files in an editor. You will shoot video weekly and will produce small video productions of your own choosing. We will also look into film and video history to help inform your personal work. If you are interested in producing shorts, stop motions, and avant-garde works—this is an ideal class for you!
