We had a great class today! I'm excited to see the work your kids produce. They're all really enthusiastic and ask wonderful questions. What we learned: Three stages of video production Shot sizes Camera angles Introduction to film project In this project, each student will select a process to film. This can be anything from...walking the dog, making cupcakes or getting ready for bed. Something in daily life that requires multiple steps to complete. Each step in the process will become a shot in their final film.
I was so excited to hear about the class' film ideas! The class is 100% on the right track. I know we'll continue to produce some really awesome content this week. What we learned: Introduction to lighting techniques The importance of scene continuity Set design Creating a storyboard I have uploaded a copy of the Powerpoint from today to our course Google Drive folder for reference. I've also made each student their own folder within the Drive to submit their work moving forward!
