Are you ready to make your photographs come alive by adding audio and video to a story? This class is for students who would like to start telling stories for the screen, using photography, video and audio. We will cover the importance of how to take dynamic photographs, the basics of how to shoot creative video footage, fundamentals of video and audio editing (using Adobe Premiere Pro) and what is important when conducting an interview and recording ambient sound. Through critique we will explore aesthetic intentions and effective sequencing to expand your visual storytelling skills. A comparative study of historical and contemporary photographers and filmmakers, from traditional photography to multimedia will be presented. Each student will produce a final multimedia project.


Please note: Students should have a good grasp of basic computer skills.
We just returned from a week away and found my zine waiting for me! I love it! Many thanks to you both and especially Edward for your time, expertise and patience as I began to learn InDesign. I am grateful and appreciative!

Anja's class helped me much more than I was expecting. I was a bit lost in proceeding with my raw idea in the beginning, but the classmates from diverse backgrounds were there with me along the whole journey, sometimes as a critic and sometimes as a supporter, and their thoughtful feedback pushed me forward a lot. I recommend Anja's online classes to anyone who wants diverse feedback and the intimacy of the classroom experience.
