FilmCraft: Weekly Movie Missions

Fairfax Collegiate's FilmCraft program lets enthusiastic young filmmakers take their skills to the next level! Students learn techniques for planning, shooting, and editing films in their home environment. Each week in class new skills are introduced, which students demonstrate in a “movie mission” to be completed by the next meeting.

FilmCraft Online classes are small, instructor-led workshops. Students brainstorm ideas for short films, write original scripts, and create shot lists and storyboards. Students shoot and edit their films outside of class, then screen the projects for their peers. Movie mission exercises include creating engaging story pitches, formatting a script, composing a shot, directing a scene, using special effects such as greenscreen, and editing digital video.
