Bring Filmmaking to Your Classroom Students conceive, plan, shoot, edit and screen short films that speak about their lives and their community. Our team works in partnership with classroom teachers to develop an interactive, immersive program that fosters artistic expression for students. Students learn basic filmmaking techniques and tips, storyboarding, lighting and camera skills, editing and sound. Workshop Options: Animation: Students make expressive and imaginative animation using stop motion techniques. Digital Storytelling: Digital stories are first-person narratives that are illustrated with animation, photographs, music, video clips, and some live action. Students are guided through the stages of preparation, script writing, image selection and the editing of their stories. Documentary: Students learn how to use film to ask hard-hitting questions and tell real-life stories about issues they care about. iPad Workshop: This workshop encourages students to create unique short videos about local history.
