Video-Based Examples


• FYS 138: The Cafe and Public Life course with Professor Beau Weston, students assembled in groups and created 12 minute short films documenting Louisville, Kentucky independent coffee houses.

• In the HIS 387: The Crusades course with Professor Amos Tubb, students created a 30-40 minute documentary on the Crusades. Dividing roles within each group, each group had to develop the storyboard, write the narration, direct the filming production, edit their video, create costumes, etc. Students in this class used the CTL video equipment to film their projects and they edited their videos in iMovie on the CTL Media Lab computers.
