M/W 2:30 p.m. - 4:20 p.m. No prerequisite
This course is an introduction to digital video production. The student will learn basic camera, sound and lighting techniques, as well as elementary story structure. Students will learn concepts of shot composition, shot sequences, movement, pacing and timing. They will also learn the basics of preproduction, production and postproduction. Participants will develop many basic production skills and will be introduced to conceptualizing, planning, storyboarding, directing and editing. Students will be introduced to Digital Non-Linear Editing (DNLE). Students will also learn about traditional and new distribution possibilities, including delivery to large screen, mobile devices and the internet.
While technical proficiency is important to any aspiring digital visual storyteller, even more important is the ability to express ideas clearly and creatively. Students are expected to push their creativity to develop original stories that can be expressed visually and in a short format.

The Digital Arts Initiative is spearheaded by the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and is a collaborative effort among faculty from the Department of Art and Art History, the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film, and the School of Music to provide interested students from all majors hands-on experience applying current technology to the arts.
Students at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln interested in the potential of collaboration with their peers in art, music, theatre, film, computer science, and related areas may also enjoy a focused study in digital arts. By expanding the student’s understanding of the application of technology in the arts, the Digital Arts Initiative will enhance the student’s creative options within their major. These elective classes will bring together students from various disciplines to share their unique perspectives. Faculty members include professionals who are committed to helping students achieve their full artistic and technical potential. Standards are rigorous, and expectations are high.
