Video Production Theory & Terminology

codecs image

If you have the potential, commitment and enthusiasm to study video production then this course is the perfect starting point!

This seminar-style workshop aims to bring students with little to no knowledge of video production to a certain level of media production literacy. It focuses on explaining media aesthetics theory, technical and creative aspects of media production, the terminology of video production/post-production, and how to use this terminology competently. The seminar will also introduce students to fundamental concepts, methods and strategies used to create specific meaning and emotional impact in the creation of videos.

This seminar is highly recommended as a pre-requisite to SAW Video's more hands-on Intro to Video Production Workshop
