J298 – Video for the Web

J298 Video for the Web 
This course is designed for students not taking J283, but want to take an entry-level video production class. It is for students whose aspirations may be to focus on a medium of journalism like writing, audio, multimedia, photography, or some other form, but don’t want to leave the journalism school without getting some foundational understanding of video storytelling. This course will also explore innovative formats that have become common on the web, such as vertical video, social video like TikTok, Instagram or YouTube, and leverage these forms in a way that communicates journalistic stories that have both impact and reach.
In this course, students will learn how to shoot video using either entry-level cameras or smartphones, learn how to use basic non-linear editing software, and learn how to compose moving pictures in a way that creates visual continuity from each shot, thinking about sequencing and story arcs.
