Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn the value of planning their shooting process via a storyboard. We will discuss location, sound, equipment, shot angles, and their topic for their mini-documentary.  Students will film projects for homework. They will edit their projects and learn how to add titles, music, media, transitions, and render their projects. Each student will have an opportunity to share their video.
I am a Community Television producer for Houston Media Source Television in Houston, TX.  I have my own TV show, Conversations with Dr. Pope. I love working with 4D cameras, but I will use my phone and iPad to record shows when necessary. I have been shooting and editing videos for three years. I use other media to produce videos, but filming is my favorite. I have taught my interns and my children how to use cameras and lights.  I am a certified teacher and I want to introduce students to the art of telling their stories through documentaries.  
Students will shoot their mini-documentary for homework with the help of their parents or friends. Students should have enough footage to tell their story in 10-20 minutes.
Students will need a Mac desktop computer or Mac laptop with iMovie editing software. They will need a camera (iPad, cell phone, or video camera). They might need lights for filming. Storage such as computer space on the hard drive, USB, or external drive. Music (copyright-free) if they plan to sell or upload to YouTube. Students will need pencil and paper to draw their storyboard or they can use the FREE software Google Slides. Headphones to use when editing mini-documentary.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
4 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will use a camera (phone, iPad, or video camera) to film their documentary. Students will use iMovie software to edit their mini-documentaries. Students will need space/storage such as a hard drive or computer to save their mini-documentary. Students can use simple sheets of paper to storyboard. They can also use Google Slides.
