Apple Hands-On Classroom Descriptions

Introduction to Final Cut Express

This class will provide a hands-on introduction to Final Cut Express, Apple's newest non-linear video editing software. The session will be focused on educators and show how the new Apple Pro Series Final Cut Express course can be used in high school, college, and university video classes. It will also compare Apple's two pro digital video editing applications -- Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro -- while demonstrating the differences between the two tools, helping educators choose the right video editing tool for their curriculum.  No video editing experience is necessary.  Computer and Mac OS familiarity recommended.

Introduction to Final Cut Pro

Final Cut Pro has created a paradigm shift in the worlds of video and film post-production.  In this hands-on class, students will edit a 30-60 second video project. Content will include an overview of the Final Cut NLE interface, keyboard navigation, marking in and out points, insert and overwrite editing, transitions, and titling.  Students will also learn about using the internal audio meters, setting audio levels, and keyframing audio to mix ambiance, music, and voice tracks.  No video editing experience is necessary.  Computer and Mac OS familiarity recommended.

Advanced Final Cut Pro featuring Color Correction

In this fast paced hands-on class, students work with Final Cut Pro’s real-time color corrector to fix improperly balanced video, learn to use and read Final Cut Pro's internal waveform and vectorscope monitors to ensure broadcast legal video, and create stylized looks -- including the “Pleasantville look,” a Black & White world with strategic highlights of color.  The class will cover advanced titling techniques, how to create a

“film look,” and how to make filter packs.  Prior Final Cut Pro experience is required.  The Introduction to Final Cut Pro class at BEA does not qualify.

From Creation To Delivery: Using Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro Together

With Final Cut Pro 3 and DVD Studio Pro on your SuperDrive-equipped Power Mac G4, you’ll have a complete digital creation and delivery system with unmatched features and unparalleled ease of use. This combo-class focuses on the synergy between Apple Computer’s Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro applications. This hands-on class will show how to create chapter and compression markers, alternate audio tracks, and alternate video angles in Final Cut Pro.  Students will learn about MPEG 2 compression, creating Dolby Digital audio tracks, adding DVD-ROM material, and the requirements for creating graphics for broadcast.  The class will then assemble a short DVD project.  Students will learn about multiplexing a final DVD and then preparing it for large scale

replication or one-off burning it on their Mac.  No video editing experience is necessary.  Computer and Mac OS familiarity recommended.

Compositing and 3D Animation at Its Best: Shake and Maya on the Mac

Did you know that you can do powerful video compositing and 3D animation on your Mac?  In this hands-on class, participants will learn the fundamental operations and nterface of Shake and Maya on the Mac.

Fred Thorne, Cal State-Chico, Vice-Chair, Faculty Scriptwriting Competition

N235/237:       20th Century Dinosaurs Preparing 21st Century “Techno-Beings” (2 Yr/Sm Col)

Faculty members who were educated before the 1990’s learned a “professorial” style of teaching. That old style does not address the needs of contemporary students and it is out of step with contemporary trends and strategies. Faculty members at two year and small colleges are greatly impacted because our faculties are often small, stable, and financially challenged. This interactive workshop will use the case study method of instruction, which is one of the methods being touted as effective and efficient for contemporary students. In small groups, participants will review a case and provide ACTION plans. The respondents would be students from our institutions. The Moderator/Facilitator will provide transitions, hand outs, and reference citations to enhance the learning experience for participants

N239/241:       Teaching the Broadcast News Course (NEWS and CCA)

The broadcast news course is the lynch pin of broadcast journalism programs nationwide.  Typically, it provides students an opportunity to learn the basic skills in production and/or writing.   It is usually taught at the lower-division level in order for students to learn the fundamental s of broadcast journalism that will serve them in their future curriculum and career as professional newscast reporters, writers, and producers.  This panel will offer participants  a variety of viewpoints on how to teach the basic broadcast journalism course.  Whether it's writing only; predominantly production; radio or television specific, or combines all of these elements; the presenters will compare and contrast their unique approaches to this critical class and will invite audience participation to add to the discussion.

Traditionally taught within the realm of health education, the EE methodology utilizes both radio and television broadcast media. Awareness among U.S. producers is growing. In a time of deep concern for negative TV content impact, we are searching for tools to reverse the negative into a positive social impact.

N235/237:       Walking the Tightrope: Free Speech vs. Community Standards in Writing, Performance and Production Classes (PAC and WRIT)

As the “Next Generation” of Writing, Performance, and Production classes “morph” into interactive teacher – student experiences, problems arise.  How do teachers present students’ scripts, performances, and productions into a positive learning experience, if the works’ content or style is occasionally immature, inappropriate, or offensive?  Yet if we “shape” students’ work to meet personal, departmental, school, or local standards, then how can students exercise true imagination and creativity?   Our panel offers guidance on this “touchy topic.”

N239/241:       How to Teach Lighting for ENG and EFP (2 Yr/Sm Col)

            This Lighting for TV Workshop has two primary purposes. First, the broadcast industry is making more use of “one-man band” operations, forcing reporters with little or no production savvy to shoot and light for themselves. Journalism professors wishing to provide instruction in video production will come away with concrete techniques to create effective lighting.  Secondly, for instructors who teach production, lighting can be a challenge. Most students have a difficult time developing their sensitivity to the nuances of lighting. The workshop will demonstrate how to help students develop an eye for lighting. Additionally, the workshop will share useful tips on how to make the most of limited equipment.
