Video Production Camp will be an intensive course in fun video production over nine days. Campers will be divided into production groups and will cover pre-production, production, and post-production fundamentals. Subjects for videos will be provided from a variety of local options and each group will choose what interests them most. High school aged campers will learn basic digital camera skills and editing in Final Cut Studio. Fundamental skills covered will include composition and framing, exposure, lighting, sound design, interviewing, essential editing basics, and post-production finishing. Guest speakers from Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies and Arts of the Moving Image will elaborate on several of the concepts taught and will give higher-level insights. Some prior experience is assumed, but this camp will cater to all students, whether novice or seasoned vlogger.
