More and more businesses, individuals and institutions are using digital stories to sell products, share information and inspire others.  As opposed to a block of text or an article, videos have the power to create gripping and lasting memories in the minds of consumers and audiences.  Therefore, digital storytelling is a useful skill for students interested in areas such as marketing, public relations, or any of the creative arts such as film or animation. In this class students will learn how to create storyboards, capture smooth, high-quality video, conduct interviews, and record music and voice-over narration.  In addition, students will also be introduced to the basic concepts of animation, motion graphics and editing.  Lab fees include software licensing and computer maintenance/replacement.  Supply fee includes printer materials, hand-outs and class supplies.
