Large studios and modern production equipment support these goals, enabling students to produce high-quality work. A comprehensive and balanced approach to study includes opportunities to produce, write, direct, shoot and edit on numerous projects. There’s a strong commitment to postproduction, and students gain practical experience on a variety of video and audio workstations.
All classes begin with writing assignments and continue with more writing, reading and oral presentations in front of a camera or microphone.
To earn the .5 credit of English students will be expected to do outside reporting, Internet research and writing assignments. Because writing and reading are an integral part of this class, all assignments are directly related to the English Language Arts Common Core State Standards.
