An introduction to the principles and practice of communicating a message to an audience through digital images (still pictures, moving pictures, and graphics) and digital sound (voice, music, ambient sound, and sound effects). Students will learn the fundamental techniques of preproduction planning, camera use, lighting, sound, and editing in order to communicate their ideas effectively, artistically, and ethically. Students also will learn to communicate their messages through digital channels, especially the Internet. The course will enable students interested in social media, public relations, advertising, journalism, corporate training, sales, e-learning, publishing, worship, and the arts to realize ideas through sound and image. Students attending advanced Media Production courses must take CAS 190.
