Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about some historic influences on Disney, as well as some special effects for optical illusions. A creative writing exercise in the form of a press release will also be incorporated into the course, as well as the basics of writing a press release and holding a press conference.

Students do not have to have visited a Disney park to participate in this course. 
I have issues many press releases in the past as well as held press conferences. I have been to Disney parks several times as well as some of the historic places that inspired these rides (except Neverland, unfortunately). 
Students will be asked to prepare a press release for their original idea for a Disney ride. It is a one page writing exercise and a form will be provided via an attachment in the classroom to direct the student to write the necessary information about the ride. Students will work individually and will be asked to present their own work. 
A one-page handout will be provided. Students may decide to use added resources such as bricks, Google slides, etc for their presentation although not required as part of the course. On day two, students may follow along by creating their own haunted mansion architecture with marshmallows and graham crackers, or other camp snack alternative.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will receive a certificate for completion of the camp and recognized for creativity and experience with publicity skills.
2 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
YouTube clips will be used through the instructors screen share only. Students will not need a YouTube account or to access the material themselves for this class. 
We will refer to the Disney rides and a brief screen share during class of YouTube videos of the techniques imagineers use to create dark rides. Students will not need to log on to any websites directly.
