Researching a media production role is extremely important for being prepared for the role.  Furthermore, research can reveal quality choices for both justification and execution in pre-production, production, post-production.


  • Create a blog post titled, Role Research: (NAME OF YOUR ROLE and THE PROFESSIONAL’s NAME) – either: Screenwriter, Director, Cinematographer, Sound Designer, Editor, Engineer, Mixer, Producer, Coder, Level Designer
    • Example: Role Research: Editor Walter Murch
  • Embed at least one video essay detailing high level techniques
  • Write copious notes under the embedded video essay
  • Link the key ideas as video links to the specific times in the video
