“Spielberg Camp – Film Making with iMovie”
We’ll explore the ins and outs of educational film making, starting from the basics right up to advanced editing techniques. Starting from story boarding, proper script formats, filming techniques, green-screens, transitions, audio manipulation, subtitles and finally online publishing to Youtube. Your students will immediately take ownership of assignments that put them in the director’s chair. No experience is necessary, but you must bring something that is capable of recording video and sound (and any associated cables).
