TVSN-6001 - Visual Effects I
This course is designed to allow the students to advance their skills in video compositing and animation. The students will be creating visual effects and animations that are similar to those seen on television and in films. Individual and group projects and exercises will be used to help each student learn new skills and develop problem-solving techniques for the digital post production industry. Students also share their own creative techniques through presentations that help build a strong learning environment.
TVSN-6002 - Post Production Development
This course will enable the Television Digital Post Production student to experience working independently and with clients in the post production environment. Students will have an opportunity to experience different post production scenarios on a weekly basis. A combination of client and independent work will allow the students to grow and develop their skills in the post production industry.
TVSN-6003 - Digital Applications Theory
This course looks at the theory of digital technology and the process required to apply it to digital post production, computer graphics creation, digital compositing, and digital compression of audio and video data. It is important that the process be taught in a generic sense, so that students will be able to adapt their knowledge to various types of equipment found in the post production industry.
TVSN-6004 - Post Production Editing I
This course is designed to provide the students with the opportunity to develop an advanced understanding of Non-Linear Editing. Students will be encouraged to explore their creativity while completing a variety of assignments relevant to the current post production market. The practical hands on experience the students receive will expand their knowledge of Digital Media creation and manipulation.
TVSN-6005 - Visual Effects II
This course is designed to give the Digital Post Production student an opportunity to complete a major project. The intent of the project is to have the student focus on specific areas of interest such as animation, visual FX and motion graphics. Practical work and problem solving will be needed to complete a complex term project. A series of practical exercises will also expand the skills of the students.
TVSN-6006 - Post Production Editing II
This course is designed to expand upon the skills the students learned in the first semester, and put them to more practical use. We will spend more time learning motion graphics and using editing techniques to incorporate the two together. This course will also help the students prepare for work in post-production when school is completed.
TVSN-6007 - Digital Internship
This course is designed to enable the Digital Post Production student to observe the Post Production industry on a day-to-day basis for a 4 week period. The student may research either a broadcast centre, local television station or post production house for their potential internship. Some locations will require resumes, portfolios and/or personal interviews prior to acceptance. This is an unpaid internship and the student absorbs all travel and accommodation expenses. Other internship options may include independent production companies, corporate video departments or educational institutions as deemed appropriate.
TVSN-6008 - Digital Applications Theory
This course looks at the advanced theory of digital technology and explains the process required to apply it to the technology of post production editing and the digital video compositing process. It is important that the process be taught in a generic sense, so that students will be able to adapt their knowledge to various pieces of equipment from various manufacturers.
TVSN-6009 - Post Production Development 2
