Designed for entry level students, this hands-on course introduces all of the essential skills and techniques required to create a film. Students will learn the fundamentals of storytelling and how they apply to the film world, and how to brainstorm and develop their own film concepts. They’ll learn basic camera skills, and gain a solid understanding of a range of different types of filming techniques through a variety of small video productions. They’ll also learn the fundamentals of video editing, and have a chance to develop their skills on iMovie to make use of all the software’s advanced post-production tools. Finally, students will learn how to apply their critical thinking skills to watching films, allowing them to analyze and appreciate films in a more meaningful way. The class will conclude with a screening of student work for the Brentwood community.
