Projects: Visual Storytelling

Spring 2020

Taught By: Shari Goodweather Kessler

Section: A

CRN: 3655

Credits: 3

This course is a two-pronged production course consisting of projects in photography and storytelling. We study the nature of photography and film and how-to make good photographs. We then learn the basic elements of narrative and apply Aristotle’s’ secrets for storytelling. Another important component of our work will be to look at ways to make the digital workflow more efficient as we organize, edit and produce creative image sequences with cinematic transitions into digital slide shows. All projects will be uploaded for viewing on the web. Students must be familiar with using digital cameras and have a to experiment with image archiving and editing software. We will introduce Lightroom CC and work in both the Library and SlideShow modules.

Pre-Requisite: Media Design (NMDS 5008) or instructor permission.
