Class Experience

Students will learn:
How Star Wars films were made.
All abuot photography, acting, art direction, cameras editing and how these crafts were used to make Star Wars.
How to make thier own film from story to storyboard, acting and writing to editing. 
I went to film school and got a degree in Film and TV. I won an international film award with George Lucas of Star Wars fame and he suggested I work on one of his projects.  I then went on to win international awards and loved what I was doing.  Every step of the way I was an innovator. I love film and video and think these media have an opportunity to transform lives and create a better world. I look forward to working with your child! The reason I want to do that is because the film-makers and artists will create a better world, they are the voice and eyes of the people. The journalists, media artists and the dreamers who will help create peace, justice and love in the world. My goal is to help students discover their own talents and abilities while have fun and learning all about film and video.
Each student will have the option to work on their own film each week. 
A video camera or smart phone.
This is a highly creative class focusing on the art and craft of Star Wars. Each student will experience what
it is like to be appreciated for their creativity no matter what they achieve. Everyone is honored for their unique talents. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will review segments of the Star Wars films and other great movies.
