Intro to Filmmaking 3-4

Students learn how to plan, write, shoot, edit and complete post-production for digital video short films.

With the guidance of instructors, students brainstorm ideas for a short film, write an original script, and create a shot list and storyboard.

Students shoot their film using a tripod, a Panasonic DVX-100B video camera, a boom microphone, and (optionally) a lighting kit. Students edit their film using iMovie, add music and credits, complete postproduction, and export the film to a private Vimeo account for home viewing.
