This course is an introduction to the entire digital video pipeline. It covers initial capture in outdoor, indoor, studio and greenscreen studio situations, editing, compositing, grading and final output. It provides an insight into the conceptual and visual possibilities of video. It introduces students to fundamental video theory, techniques and processes that are explored and developed in the context of a creative work in video. Students will develop a research and development portfolio as a pre-production component to the creation of the creative Work. This portfolio is a comprehensive planning document that clarifies the theoretical, conceptual and technical scope of the creative work. Typical areas of investigation at this level include, but are not restricted to, storyboarding, pre-production, lighting, editing, installation and so on. Workplace health and safety is approached professionally.
