How does a "Flex" course work?

No scheduled live video chats
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great if your learner prefers independent pacing or is uncomfortable with live video chat

Class Experience

Learners will be able identify and create with the following special effects: Transitions, Split-Screens, Filters, and Green-Screen Effects.
Before becoming a teacher, I worked as a second assistant director and production assistant on a couple of independent films. I wrote and directed my own short film in my studies at a summer film program at USC. 
Learners will need - iMovie app on a phone, ipad, or computer. - green paper for green screen effect
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
• Learners will need access to an Apple phone, tablet, or computer to access the iMovie app. 
• I will share templates using Google Docs which can be downloaded to a variety of formats, printed or copied onto notebook paper. Learners are not required to use their google accounts or to share their google account information.
