    Video Production 2

    Video Production 2 is organized around the five major standards of the California arts curriculum. Students will study and research film genres in order to understand the complexity of video art and its role in film history. As each standard is introduced, students will apply and practice the principles learned in that standard through a major course project. Each project will require the application of sophisticated videography techniques as outlined in the arts standards. The course projects will be included in the student’s cumulative portfolio. If the school site offers this course as an ROP course, the student must be in 11th or 12th grade in order to enroll.
