Advanced Video Camera and Editing



Objectives and Skills


ACE will help you work on enhancing your photography and editing skills, and thus, enhance your storytelling abilities. You will get to work individually and collaborate in team projects. Your work will be evaluated based on three criteria: Developing, Proficient and Exemplary. See Grading.

The only way to get an A in this course is to do Exemplary work. As this is an advanced course, and because you will be doing a project that will be made public, the expectations for you will be higher.
