Digital Collective 2021 Final Presentation

Replicating a digital production team, students were divided into three teams to create short films. Each team, guided by instructors, consists of a videographer, audio & lighting designer, video streamer/editor, and a producer/director. As production team members gained foundational skills in the departments listed above, DC Producers developed pre production plans that included budgets, location scouting and script development.  Students worked towards creating projects that are introspective, critical, and ambitious.
