This course, offered in collaboration with The People’s Channel, teaches the essential elements of documentary video production. Students will learn how to use HD cameras, tripods, and professional audio equipment. We’ll also learn basic shot composition and digital editing techniques using Final Cut Pro X. The end goal: an original 5-10 minute documentary. No experience necessary — just a willingness to play and learn. All equipment will be provided by TPC, and upon completion of the course, students will be certified to use TPC’s cameras for additional productions throughout the year. The class will be held at The People’s Channel in Chapel Hill.
