Class Information:
Room Number: Film and Video
Students per Class: 40
Class Description:
I teach two levels of film and video--beginning and advanced. We cover everything from film history, to script writing, to production and post. We study photography, directing, and create a variety of pieces including: art videos, documentaries, dramas, comedies, horror, and science videos. We also archive school activities throughout the year.
Film and Video Instructor
The program has grown in the past year, but the technology remains the same. I am in need of two more computer and at least two more digital cameras. Right now I have two computers that are in declining working order, and one handi-cam and one nicer camera that can be used only under supervision.
My Philosophy:
I hope my students receive a well-rounded exposure to film, with an emphasis on hands-on experience. I believe a multi-pronged approach with respect to different learning styles enhances the creative and learning experience.
