Videos are finally available to view

Please go to the “videos” tab of this site to view some newly-posted videos from past students. Because of space allocations, many videos were not included on their own but a montage of some of highlights were included. I hope to rotate out some of the videos in the coming weeks/months too.
In addition, we hope to have the class music video and documentary available soon.
Happy viewing!

Gain control of your camera and discover techniques that can create great pictures. Learn exposure control and aesthetics. Create meaningful images or learn about the history of photography.”

If you have any questions about the photography courses, you may contact Professor Rebhan at grebhan@nvcc.edu.

Publicity for PHT 130 Class

Here is an article in the NOVA newspaper, NOVA Fortnightly,¬†(serving all Northern Virginia Community College¬†campuses and satellite locations), detailing one writer’s observation of the PHT 130 (Video Production I) music video shoot this past spring 2012 semester.

As this program continues to expand, we are hopeful to include bigger and bigger projects, involving many industry professionals to add to the learning experience.

Starting next week on this blog, we will start highlighting the film courses offered on this campus, so please check back.

Also, we hope to premiere both the video itself and the behind-the-scenes documentary in about two weeks.
