Explore the art of digital filmmaking by shooting and editing your own unique video. Learn to write a script, operate a camera using manual functions and make edits to your film. Using the latest equipment, techniques, and software students will learn the ins and outs of video production and make films while using the editing suite trusted by the professionals: Adobe Premiere and Creative Cloud. The course begins with basic principles of short narrative filmmaking: screenplay structure, camera functionality, camera operation, and role descriptions. Students then learn how to work as a crew, how to storyboard, how to direct, and how to edit. Students will produce two to three short film projects from start to finish, learning from each experience as they share, reflect and receive constructive feedback.
This course is one of our flagship Tech Camp experiences, infused with hands-on, project-based learning, designed to equip students with 21st-century technology skills. Students will engage in real-world problem solving and collaborate with fellow students to create solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems.
