Omschrijving This third professional skills course allows students to develop their conceptual and production skills in digital storytelling and transmedia production, such as for online, mobile, transmedia, social media and other emerging media formats. Building on writing and social media skills acquired in the course units Professional Writing and Social Lab, students explore a range of storytelling forms for digital media and multiplatform production. After they have acquired basic skills in video production and web design in technical workshops, students will in teams develop a transmedia project on a topic of their choice. They start with developing a concept, engaging with issues such as structure, design, user experience and multiplatform project scoping. They then craft a script for a transmedia project which includes various platforms. Consequently they produce a limited online project. In the course of developing and producing their projects, students develop skills for the different stages of media production, including planning the project, researching in the field, promoting their work, fostering relations with diverse audience groups, working as a team and managing a project.
