Video Production: Theory and Practice

when 30 May 2023 - 14 July 2023
language English
duration 7 weeks
credits 6 EC
fee EUR 1300

The course aims to give students an understanding of video filming and editing from a theoretical and practical perspective. They will start by analysing the elements of a good video before moving on to practical exercises. The learning outcomes of these exercises are designed to be useful for their professional careers. The ability to deal with video and audio material is becoming increasingly important in many areas of the workplace. The aim is to give students insights into how to plan their video/audio products effectively and how to execute these plans so that they meet client expectations. In the future, students may have to write scripts for / produce videos, do interviews, be interviewed and present to camera. These are all useful skills that are also transferable to other areas of working life. The course covers interviewing skills (from the research phase to the execution of the interview and the selection of what material is used) for the production of a short video, camera presentation skills, script writing skills, writing video concepts based on client expectations and filming and producing two videos.

Credits info

6 EC
Students have the choice to take this Summer Programme either with or without credits. You may register for a maximum of 2 courses (6 ECTS per course). Any combination is possible! Both obvious ones, like 'Human Rights and International Criminal Law' and 'The EU’s Approach to Democratisation and Human Rights', and less obvious ones, like 'European Cinema' and 'The Belgian Brewery Industry in a Global Context'. In the latter course, the famous Belgian beer industry is taken as a multi-faceted case study for studying core business processes and international market developments. On top of that, you will also get the possibility of learning the nuts and bolts of the beer brewing process yourself!

Another great thing about this Summer Programme is that you can also choose an internship as one of your two selected courses. Then you will actually be able to acquire working experience with one of our selected internship partners!

The Brussels School of Governance is an alliance between the Institute for European Studies (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) and Vesalius College. This Undergraduate Summer Programme is organised by Vesalius College.
