Video Production Syllabus

If you want to use a camera, you must have a
shot list or a script that is annotated with shots!

Rather than working on our current project until
you are 'done', you are now required to work on it
until we move on to the next project as a class.

It is never perfect.
There are always improvements that can be made.

We will explore image upscalers to improve resolution.

Course Description

This is a hands-on, project-based video course in which students will complete numerous short videos over the semester. Each video project includes multiple deliverables including proposals, scripts, schedules, and final videos. Please see the class schedule for projects and dates.


We will be using Adobe Premiere to edit videos. Adobe Premiere is installed on school computers, and we will be using on-line tutorials for mastering specific software functions.

This class largely takes an approach of self-directed learning. That means that when you are expected to research and figure out things largely on your own. The teacher will provide you with tutorials, and will locate needed tutorials that are not already on the course menu. A primary goal of this course is learning how to learn new skills and learning how to navigate and locate new information.

Grading Policy

The weighted categories for grading are:

  • 100 Point Project Grades
    This includes all videos and video elements, such as storyboards and proposals. Work submitted late will lose 20% initially, then 10% for each week late after 24 hours. So, if a project is turned in 8 days late, it would lose 30%.

  • 10-20 Point Classwork Grades
    This includes short activities such as quizzes, exit tickets, and other work that is not part of a project.
