Class Experience

Foundations for screenwriting, visual storytelling skills, camera angles, editing techniques and transitions, foundations in sound. In the end, students create a film of their own and enjoy the experience of making their film using just a smartphone. 
I have been teaching digital media to students from 2nd to 5th grade. Students love the dynamic of making a film. As a film professional, I love to teach the kids about these subjects, I'm very passionate about it. From my own perspective, I engage with the students by talking about movies and how fun is creating then, I also enjoy building collaborative groups and leaders who work together to create something new and unique. 
Every class, there is an assignment for the students to reinforce the core activity. 
Come up with an idea for their film project and draft a screenplay. 
Practice camera angles.
Write a screenplay
Create a scene using the concept 3 light setting.
Edit your film
At the beginning of the class, students have the choice to share the work done from the previous day's assignment. 
With the creation of several film challenges, the teacher assesses students' understanding of the subjects.
This allows me to measure their level of success in class. 
The final project for the students will be the creation of a short film of two minutes long. I love to create reflections with students and encourage sharing their opinions and ideas about the topics in class, but also what they love about their learning experience.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please be advised we will be using third-party tools, which require parents' approval. 

The teacher always advises students to check with parents that the teacher mention in class. Sometimes the teacher talks about certain films that are not age-appropriate for them; however, the teacher will never show these films' video clips.

The content is curated and reviewed for the students. I regularly check the material I show in class with, a great tool for parents and teachers to understand what is appropriate to show kids and what age.
