Along the way students will meet working professionals and be exposed to a variety of story-telling genres and conventions, ultimately becoming auteurs, as they share and learn to critique the raw footage they shoot each week and watch clips from classics.
In addition, students will learn to use an impressive array of camera equipment, including professional High Definition video cameras, a DSLR camera, a “vlogging” (video blogging) camera, a drone, a Go-Pro, and consumer cameras including flip cams, ipods and cellphones.
They will be taught the basics of film and documentary genres, shooting techniques, and how to record good quality audio using professional equipment.They are also learning how to import their clips onto a computer, log their footage, add selected clips to a timeline, add music, and create titles.
The program will culminate in the premier of the videos our filmmakers create! Stay tuned for screening dates and times!
“I’ve never directed before and it’s been amazing! I’ve gotten to write too. This course is a great way to be able to collaborate with people and have an excellent final result.” Cody V.
“It’s a great opportunity to be able to make a film that we wouldn’t have the ability to make without Rochelle and Nan. I appreciate how they allow the kids to write their own scripts and use their own artistic styles within the movie. They have supported us, in that they’re finding ways to make almost every one of our ideas realities.” Gideon L.
