In Filmmaking class, students will have the opportunity to understand the art form of film. Film is an excellent way to communicate as well as evoke emotion from the viewer. Student filmmakers are encouraged to make artistic choices based on compositional framing and editing to compose a storyline that will engage the viewer.  Students will learn the numerous tools used in film in order to communicate ideas about their plots lines, themes, and characters in their own films.
Students who are enrolled for the entire year will then be introduced to multiple film genres, discussing how each genre consistently chooses similar techniques taught in the previous semester.  The students will also become proficient in filmmaking software programs such as iMovie and Adobe Premiere. Students are encouraged to enroll for the full year film course.
