Design and Multimedia Arts

Design and Multimedia Arts

The audio and video production sequence at Travis Early College High school is made up of three courses in which students learn every aspect of production: writing, filming, directing, producing, and editing. They learn in a very "hands on" project - based environment and  master a wide variety of media creation skills including using video cameras, editing video, acting, and music creation.

Audio and Video Production

This class is articulated with RTVB 1305 at Austin Community College. Here students learn the basic skills of video production, from brainstorming an idea all the way to editing and showing it to an audience.

Audio and Video Production 2

Building off their skills from level one, the students produce even more ambitious productions with more professional equipment. Students in level two can take the Adobe Certified Associates exam to become a certified Premiere Pro video editor.

Digital Audio Technology

Students study studio recording and music production in our recording studio that we call The Beat Lab. Here students learn the skills of audio recording, foley, radio, and music production.
