In this class we will use HD digital video cameras. In order to complete this class you must have access to (via a previous purchase or new purchase) your own HD digital video camera. You will need a camera with a microophone jack and the ability to record in HD. Along with the camera, you will need both a minijack microphone and a tripod (full-sized). Some cameras, microphones, and tripods are avaialble for signout from the OLT program inventory in Dunn 395 (limited supply). It is always preferable for you to use your own your own equipment, as this will help to ensure knowledge transfer in the future. For editing, we will be using Final Cut Pro on the iMacs in Dunn 210. You may choose to edit on any number of alterantive systems, including, but not limiited to: iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, Lightworks, Adobe Premiere, or Kdenlive. You are similarly encouraged to edit on your own systems, although if you use a laptop the use of a second monitor is encouraged.
