351:309 - Digital Storytelling
DigitalStorytelling teaches students how to write, shoot, and edit cinematic fiction works. Students work hands-on with Adobe Premiere Pro and digital cameras are provided by the Writers House program. The course begins by teaching students how to write and craft a script; then, instructors explore shooting a script, using the camera, editing shots, and directing the final production. By the end of the semester, students gain two technical abilities: writing fiction for film, and directing cinematic fiction works. All students gain access throughout the course to editing labs at Murray Hall: available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for the entire semester.
