Description: Media Literacy is an approach that mixes media analysis and media practice. We will examine pressing issues in creative media and film and use the tools of creative media to explore and comment on them. Topics covered include media ownership and practices, media representation and reception, and legal issues such as censorship, piracy, intellectual property, and fair use. The course is open to different levels of technical proficiency in media, from a familiarity with widely available apps to ability with DSLR cameras and Final Cut Pro. This is not a course in production techniques, rather it focuses on the content you create and the commentary you make with creative media tools. Letter grade only.
