Writing for New Media: Digital Series I

Media literacy practices are rapidly evolving beyond traditional scriptwriting for film and TV to include webisode writing, blogging, microblogging, maintaining a website, emailing, and instant messaging. This is a project-based, experiential, synchronous learning course. It covers the history and theory of short-form episodic content with the purpose of conceptualizing, writing, producing, and directing an original web series pilot that will be published and promoted via online video-sharing platforms. As this is a two-part learning experience, students will write experimental pilot scripts for an advertising video, a comedy video, and a video of their choice.

All materials and texts used throughout the course will be provided.
