Digital Media Courses:

Digital Media: Video and Audio Production – Do you want to add podcasts or audio slideshows to your Web sites? Or do you just want to produce great digital stories? In the converged newsrooms of the 21st century, student journalists are faced with learning how to produce all kinds of digital media for websites, for traditional video news shows and for announcements. Come to this session to learn how to produce great digital stories — particularly audio and video — that will look and sound great no matter the platform. Work on the camp website www.kjicamp.com while you’re here.

Digital Photojournalism (Beginning and Advanced) – Student photographers from all levels are invited to work with one of the nation’s top photo instructors on everything from capturing the perfect moment to Photoshop techniques. We cover the basics of photojournalism and Photoshop. You will learn how to master your digital camera, how to capture motion, and how to prepare those photos for publication, in print or on the Web. Students will need to bring their own digital cameras.

 Storytelling: Feature and Sports Writing for Print and Digital Media – Students will explore different types of stories, generate story ideas, refine writing skills and learn to be storytellers for their school. We will look at examples of effective features — in sports, news and entertainment — and write some of our own. Whether students plan to write for yearbook, newspaper and/or the Web site, this class will help them become great storytellers.
