Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

This is a horrific year in Media Studies. We will be looking at the horror film genre, how it has evolved over time and how women are represented in them, then develop our own short films before overseeing a production project from script to screen. This includes: pre-production design and planning, filming and editing a short film and learning how to use DSLR cameras and Adobe Premier Pro editing software along the way. Finally, we will look at an ethical issue found in Social Media.
