It is essential now for every company and business to have a website to showcase its products and strengths, from corporate websites to social media marketing. Digital videos are also the new frontier for Cinema and Art, including tutorials and educational videos. This course will teach students how to create a video through the following steps: concept, outline, scriptwriting and pre-production; production; post-production; distribution. At the end of the semester there will be a public screening of the students’ projects which also will be published online.
