The famous director Ron Howard once said, “Theater is an actor's medium. Movies are for directors ”.
Do you ever watch movies and wonder “How did they do that?” or think “I wish I could do that!” Then this class is for you!
If you are an aspiring storyteller who loves movies and constantly has stories playing out as movies looping in your head, come learn how to make your fantasy a reality!
In this class, students will work in groups of 4-5 and form their own “production companies” to conceptualize and produce a short original digital video project.
