Prerequisite knowledge and skills

Television information in practice

Having taken the Audiovisual techniques class (CINE0039) is an asset but it isn't a mandatory prerequisite.
Students with no audiovisual experience will be offered a remedial workshop. 

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Digital technologies and journalism

The course will be, most of the time, a workshop. After the presentation of each new technique, the students will perform exercises and debate the topics. I'll be available to answer questions and give technical support if necessary.

Television information in practice

The theorical part is based on stories analysis and stand-up interviews observations. 
The practical part is divided in two parts : 
First : the production (shooting, editing, sound mixing) and the evaluation of a first short story. This is a group exercise in groups of 3 students. Alternatively, the students will experience their first stand-up interview experiences. 
Second : the students (still by groups of 3) will create and present a sequence counting two stories. After a first evaluation, the students will bring improvements to the sequence based on the feedback notes. This last version is presented at the exam, along with a final stand-up interview exercise. 

Mode of delivery (face to face, distance learning, hybrid learning)

The evaluation is divided in two phases:

  • 80% for the long sequence and the last stand-up interview.
The stories must be sent by WeTransfer to the teacher (Charles Neuforge) and the person in charge of the audiovisual lab LICAM (Fanny Pluymers).
