The North and West schools have just finished up there third project this past week - the “Experimental” projects. The sole purpose of this project is to expand the creativity from past projects. Students were strongly encouraged to try different camera angles and techniques and film ordinary classroom items such as a ruler or whiteboard and think of effects/music to make them look better! This gives all the students a better understanding and grasp on what is available to them in creating ANY video project.
The students will have smoke, lightning, fire, explosions, color correction, static etc. for effects in some, maybe all of their projects! Each student has picked what they want for all their shots. I will begin editing them very shortly!
The West has started preparing for next weeks shoot - Green Screen! kids will love this activity and showed their enthusiasm during the prep period today.
The middle school wrapped up their infomercial prepping and will film their projects next week! Saturday Playhouse 10 meets THIS Saturday for part one of our holiday episode. Filming this week is the holiday quiz, turkey ghost hunt, apple search and a holiday skit! should be another stellar episode!
That’s all for now, check out the youth vimeo links for the past video explorer projects and Saturday Playhouse episodes!
and remember… continuity is very important while making a video!
