COMRT 279 - Community-Based Media: Creative Citizenry Through the Use of Video

Credits: 4
An exploration of the history, theory, and practice of community-based media practices. In conjunction with identified community organizations, students develop a strategic plan for the construction of a film or video, learn about the practices of distribution, and actively engage a target audience. The creation of the film or video is seen as a critical, though not isolated, component in the process of productively advancing community goals. Students ground their work in historical and theoretical understandings of community-based media practices.

Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor.

Distribution Requirements: CL, ME.
