Work Based Learning Opportunities:

In Digital Media Production and Advanced Video-Film, students take on "clients" and create content based upon their directions. "Clients" typically include Family, Friends, and School Organizations. The projects are largely promotional, and often times commercial.

Leadership or certifications:

"Producers" in Digital Media Production determine the content of both video broadcasts and print articles. They work with less experienced students within the class to support them in seeing projects through to completion.

Students in Advanced Video-Film may choose to use the year to train specifically for the Adobe Premiere Pro Certified Professional Exam.
