Intro to Filmmaking

Rising Grades 3 to 4

Work with other kids and start telling stories with video.

The course begins with the class brainstorming ideas for a short film, writing an original script, and creating a shot list and storyboard.

The students shoot their film using tripods, advanced video cameras, boom microphones, costumes, and props.

Finally, as a class, students edit their film, add music and credits, and export the film to a private Vimeo account for home viewing.
