Digital Film is an elective pathway, offered by the Digital Design and Production academy, which serves as an introduction to basic video, film, and audio production. The goal of these courses is for the student to develop the ability to capture great video images and audio and to be able to edit those two elements together to tell a story.

Students in the classes will produce thirty seconds to five-minute videos, taking each project from pre-production, through shooting, to post-production and editing. Students will learn the vocabulary of cinematography. In addition, students will learn how to work with cameras and editing equipment.

Though students will have some individual assignments cooperative groups wil be the main work pattern for the class. Being successful in this class requires all students to work in small groups.
