This course allows students to explore their creativity through the medium of motion pictures. Students conceive, write, plan, shoot, edit and master their own short films. Films can be narratives, documentaries, commercials, or music videos. Students use professional equipment in all phases of production and are able to showcase their work at our own film festival at the end of the year as well as other local, student film festivals. Students are also exposed to basic film history and theory as well as cinematography and editing techniques.
In this class, students are able to deepen their understanding of one of the world’s most powerful media – film. They are able to develop an original idea from a written script to the production shoot, all the way through the editing room. Watching this happen every day is extremely rewarding.Mr. Dominguez
