MediaCamp Courses

This year’s edition of MediaCamp focuses on Multimedia Storytelling. For the purposes of this camp, we will approach it from 3 angles: Photography, Digital Filmmaking, and Using the Web.

It will begin from the basics of camera handling (both for photos and videos), exposure, composition and lighting. There will also be classes on photo editing (using Adobe Photoshop), and video editing (using Adobe Premiere Pro). Participants will be divided into groups and will make short films and photo projects.

Kindly note that you are required to come along with a laptop for this option. If you have a DSLR camera, you can also bring this along (great idea but not compulsory).
