UCOR 1300-03 Creative Expression: Digital Storytelling

Whether you’re working on creative projects or creating a “minimum viable story,” creative and effective digital storytelling is crucial. In this course you will explore digital storytelling and creativity in a range of formats including hand-drawn and graphic images, written scenarios, photography, audio, and video. The course focuses on developing awareness of expressive and creative techniques in order 1) to develop craft through emulation of professional norms, and 2) to take creative risks by experimenting with storytelling forms you find compelling. Planning, production, post-production, and content management methods will be learned, culminating in a final video project. No previous technical skill is required. The digital tools needed are those available with a smartphone and an internet- connected laptop: digital photography, audio and video capture, the ability to transfer media to your computer for further modification, and the ability to share and reflect on work online.

This class is fully online.
