In Grade 10, students build upon their first-year foundation to practice more advanced aspects of digital media. Students will continue to learn and practice the components of field and studio production. In field production, students will expand their knowledge of pre-production (with continued emphasis on narrative development and more sophisticated planning: props, wardrobe, set design and extras), production (skill development with camera, lighting and audio equipment) and post-production (emphasizing developing greater skill in using Adobe Creative Suite for editing, including graphics, audio and special effects). Students learn advanced editing techniques using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. They will also gain a basic understanding of the use of Adobe After Effects to develop relevant special effects for a wide range of production projects.
In studio production, students will rotate through the diverse roles of a studio production team, with a focus on camera setup and usage, audio mixing and equipment usage, lighting techniques, video switching and studio management. Students will work as teams to produce recorded and live production work.
