Today, in our evolving multimedia landscape, there has never been a higher demand for professionals with digital production skills. Now, it is needed in almost every industry. Yet, technical skills without creativity only go so far. Art: Summer at Penn’s, New Media Course, bridges this gap and allows students to grow their technical production skills. Explore and experiment with digital photography, video, sound, light, projection and installation. Then students can apply this knowledge towards a career in film, museum installation, graphic design and many more. Students will learn how to edit and publish various screening formats. They will also focus on a combination of individual and collaborative projects with access to state of the art modern equipment.
