Digital Arts

Through Digital Arts, students explore journalistic and broadcast experiences. Video courses allow students to learn the craft of video production from script writing to filming and editing using advanced software. Students create full feature video segments that are aired in weekly episodes of TPTV and used in marketing videos for the School.

In Journalism and Yearbook classes, students take on roles as editors, photographers, designers and writers to create publications such as the School newspaper, The Terrapin Times. Their publishing experience includes event coverage and deadlines to prepare them for the fast-paced nature of the publication industry. In Digital Photography, students study composition and the design elements required to take intriguing artistic photographs. These courses utilize industry-standard software including Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, InDesign, Final Cut Pro and more.

THE DOOR. An independent film by students.

Students in Video Production and Advanced Film and Video courses partnered with an industry professional in the filming of the independent short, The Door. The Door was entered into the 2017 Global Shorts Film Festival, a professional (not student) competition in Los Angeles. Of all the entries by professionals, our students' film tied for Second Place with an Honorable Mention.
