Welcome to TV Media!

Course Blueprint: The purpose of this course is to enable students with practical and marketable skills in the fields of Television Media and Digital Film Making.  It will emphasize self-management career skills and demand varying combinations of artisic imagination, metaphoric representation, symbolic connections, and technical administration.  Students will be introduced to the history and creative process of filmmaking and will acquire specific skillls in all of the production phases including production planning, camera operating, editing, sound recording, screen writig, directing, lighting, interviewing, reporting, and acting in hands-on situations that will establish the experience of working productively in teams toward project based goals.  The job skills of teamwork, leadership, time management, organizing and sharing responsibilitiy with others will be invaluable regardless of future career goals.  Through various activites and exercises participants will learn an alternative form of artistic expression to communicate ideas, stories, thoughts and feelings.  The collective output will be presented in public film screenings and on broadcast television (Channel 29 in Alameda!) throughout the year.
