Students explore the short film and documentary production process. They also experience both location and studio production techniques and utilize many research interview techniques. Students create advanced composite and 3D graphics with Motion and After Effects.
Students write a 10 page script that can be shot in a high school setting. After a round robin of script reading and feedback, students re-write their script and discuss them again in class. 1-3 scripts are selected to be shot as a class in groups or as a whole. The films are showcased in the Shawnee Media Fesitval.
Students are asked to record observations on their culture and current trends with a camera. They gather, evaluate, and synthesize information from a range of sources to make an articulated statement about their culture.
