Virtual PD Workshop: Filmmaking in the Classroom: A Look at the Production Process

This Workshop will be Rescheduled

Registration Opening Soon!

Date and Time: TBD

$100

 

Filmmaking in the classroom can be intimidating, if not downright overwhelming (we’ve all been there). We’ll take you step-by-step through the Film Production Process, including:

  • How to control the scope of a project
  • The best ways to film in a school
  • How to manage editing with a group

 

By exploring the most important parts of Pre-Production, Production, and Post-Production, and engaging with custom-made resources, attendees will gain a nuanced and complete understanding of how to confidently lead students through the filmmaking process in the classroom.

 

Workshop Specific Goals:

  • Warm-up with exercises centered around each phase of film production
  • Review tried and true worksheets and tips used in group filmmaking projects
