MCOM 402 A Theoretical Introduction to TV, FALL 2019
Adeel Ahmad Aamir, adeelaamir@fccollege.edu.pk, Forman Christian College University
This course is the combination of both theory and practice. What is television today? How have representations of gender, race and class changed due to television's transformation from a single-channel mass medium to a multi-channel niche-oriented medium? We will be addressing such key tele-visual questions along with the technical learning of the production phases for TV programs. Students will learn all kind of camera shots, movements, production rules and editing techniques through different practical demonstrations and projects. At the end of this course students will be able to:

  • Know the essential production phases;
  • Know the jargon of the TV production,;
  • Plan different TV programs;
  • Research, implement and execute their ideas

[Expected enrollment: 40]

Languages

Language instruction offers an excellent opportunity for a Globally Connected Course. The longest running course connection has been between German courses at the American University in Bulgaria and Denison University. German is not the native language for students on either campus, so they have the same sets of challenges. Since language courses are sequenced, there is also the opportunity for students to have several connected courses together and to get to know each other.
