This class will teach students the fundamentals of filmmaking. Students will learn what is necessary in order to create a movie by going through the processes of preproduction, production, and post production. Students will create a short film with an idea they conceptualize, shoot, and edit. Students will work together as a team, both crew and actors, in order to create their own short movie. Students are asked to please bring their own iPhone or iPad to create and edit with. They will need to download the free iMovie app. There will be a classroom computer available for demonstration.
