Video Production Curriculum Guide. Trade and Industrial Education.
This curriculum guide is intended to help instructors implement video production as a trade and industrial education course offering with communication skills woven into each unit. The guide is written for a double-period class, meeting 350 hours per year for two years. The first year is based on single camera production; the second year is based on multiple camera and audio sources. For the second year, a studio set-up is suggested, with at least two cameras and a special effects generator with switching, editing equipment, lighting, and a character generator. The guide is divided into units for the first and second years. Each unit consists of a time allotment, overview, unit outline, performance objectives, resources to provide suggested learning activities, vocabulary, and competencies. The first-year units include a survey of American media, introduction to video production, principles of photography, how televisions and videocassette recorders work, basic equipment, camera techniques, audio theory and lab, lighting, graphics, basic script writing, directing/producing the single camera production, basic editing, and student projects. The second-year units include ethical and legal implications of video technology, studio equipment, advanced camera techniques, advanced audio, studio lighting, special effects, on-camera performance, set design and props, directing, the producer, electronic editing, electronic journalism and research, advanced projects, developing employment skills, and new technology. A list of 66 resources concludes the guide. (YLB)
