The Department of Educational Communication (DEC) facilitated a seminar on video documentary production for agriculture students on 9 October 2023 at the Agricultural Systems Institute (ASI) Lecture Hall of the  College of Agriculture and Food Science (CAFS).

Two DEC faculty members, namely Dr. Edmund G. Centeno and Mr. Elijah Jesse M. Pine, shared their knowledge on the processes and techniques of video documentary production. This activity was held to prepare the AGRI 61 (Agricultural Extension and Communication) students of Dr. Dario A. Cidro in the production of documentary videos tackling agricultural issues and technologies, which will be  one of their major outputs for this semester. 

Dr. Centeno discussed the pre-production phase of video production, particularly on writing the rationale, treatment, and objectives (RTO), scriptwriting, and storyboarding techniques. Afterward, Mr. Pine also shared tips and tricks on the video production phase, such as asking questions during interviews, framing, capturing videos, and recording audio.

Faculty members, REPS, and staff of ASI also attended the event. (Emerey Ralph P. Racoma)
