Film Description:

Goal – TechTown’s Film Classes are designed to take students through a number of video production scenarios. They will help those students with very little filming knowledge to gain a good foundation for what video production entails. For the more experienced student, Film Camp will allow him/her to look a little deeper into how to make better films and video by adding to the knowledge they already have. In addition, students are encouraged to (1) be creative, (2) work together, (3) have fun and (4) focus on telling a story with video.

Interaction – Students will become a member of a Film Production Crew and experience working together, collaborating, delegating and adhering to video production deadlines of the camp. They will also receive hands-on experience with high definition video cameras, DSLR cameras, lenses, studio lighting, professional microphones, professional sound capture equipment, camera support systems, motion equipment, and professional editing software and related computers.

Skills – Techniques students will learn or sharpen: storyboarding, shot composition, directing, basic script writing, basic acting, basic video editing, microphone placement, lighting people and objects, camera manipulation (focus, zoom, aperture, shuttle speed, frame rate, color balance, audio volume control, handling recording media, and more…), camera support & motion equipment use, and a basic knowledge of what a video production workflow looks like and feels like.

Take Aways – Each student will have the opportunity to create and take home: (1) a video interview (a) their own and (b) their crew member’s, (2) a product video, (3) a new media video (as in YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, etc.) and (4) a short film of their crew’s design. Special “Theme Weeks” may offer up a different style of video such as a Music Video, a TV Channel Compilation or other Camp Theme Related Videos. Each of these Projects is of Student’s own and/or their Crew’s design and creation. Final video files are sent via download to an email as well as provided to each student on a jump drive.
