Teacher in Charge: Miss G. Luxton
This course aims to give you a space and tools to tell your stories, whatever those may be, in whatever form they come. You will be mainly focusing on practical work some script-writing and planning.
We will work with you on the fundamentals of filmmaking and your story into a script and a final completed short film.
You will tell us what skills you need to know, and choose which ones you want to attend. Some ideas for this are: lighting, green screen, trick shots, editing, camera movement, story boarding, how to film different kinds of scenes (fighting, conversations, chases), set design, costume design, props, special effects, directing, and acting for stage and screen.
- Dissection of achievement standards and writing assessments together so everyone has an individually structured course.
- Developing design and plan
- Practical skills workshops including but not limited to lighting, green screen, trick shots, editing, camera movement, storyboarding, how to film different kinds of scenes, set design, costume design, props, special effects, directing and acting for stage and screen.
Lights! Camera! Action! Put your new skills and ideas to the test by starring, directing, film and editing your film.
Put final touches on your short film and create mini/passion projects to end the year.
