Digital Video Advanced Production (CVDVAP)

Advanced Certificate

Description

The advanced certificate in the Digital Video program concentrates on specialty aspects of production. Each course spends a full semester concentrating on the critical phases of pre-production, production and post-production (for example, screenplays, cinematography and editing). This curriculum begins with students' creation of a screenplay and continues with sound design, cinematography, direction, advanced green screen techniques, and television studio applications. A unique component to this curriculum allows each student to write their script at the starting point and produce their concept through each class and phase of pre-production, production, and post-production. Students have the option to either complete the curriculum with one final thesis project or complete multiple project exercises.

Students should choose the appropriate faculty for academic advising based on their last name: Dan Kier (A-M), Matt Zacharias (N-Z).

Admissions Requirements

Completion of the Digital Video Production Certificate or comparable industry experience.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”

—F. Robertson
