FAMS 201 Making Media I

This course introduces students to creative and technical aspects of media production, and is designed to provide a basic understanding of framing, composition, audio and storytelling through the use of sound and image. Students learn fundamentals of lighting, audio recording, and digital video. We will also study aspects of pre-production and production through hands-on assignments, readings, screenings, discussion of assigned exercises and in-class workshops with camera and lighting equipment. No prior production experience necessary.
