Course Description

During the course, students will work in small groups to produce a digital media project on a topic of their choosing.  Students will work on the following production skills and corresponding software over the course of their project work:

-Stop Motion: this is a form of animation using pictures taken in a sequence.  The software used to develop the stop motion animation is Dragonframe.
-Film Editing: students will be asked to edit and produce a video using professional grade- software called Final Cut Pro X.
-Digital drawing using Procreate
-Animation on iPad using Smoovie and/or Rough Animator

Students will have access to professional cinema cameras and rigs, professional music creating and recording equipment, polymer clay and tools, lights, green screens, and still picture cameras as well as camera moving gear such as a gimbal, a slider, and a dolly. NOTE: Students will determine their target skill set to develop based on the project they choose to produce. At the end of the semester, students will host family and friends to view their projects. 

Students with all levels of digital media experience are encouraged to sign up for the course.  No prerequisites.

Homework
Homework isn't assigned typically. However, students usually want to work on their projects during the week. However, homework isn't a graded component of this class. Creativity is the most important aspect and can happen daily.
Other Information
I am currently working with Excel, Big Mountain and iLead for charters. Apps and equipment constantly change. During this time at home, I have discovered many things that I'll continue to use/utilize moving forward. Digital Media is an essential skill set for the 21st century.
