Fast Film School

Saturday April 8th Scott Spears and I creating a one day film workshop with 4H students. The morning lecture included methods on screenwriting, directing, budgeting a film, camera moves and editing tools. The students got hands on experience with producing a very short horror film where each student go to run camera, and the boom pole.  In the afternoon, while Spears editing the piece together, I gave a lecture on doing documentary projects from the one-minute day in the life video that can be in one day to doing the long-term project that can take up to an year to make.

Last week I gave a presentation on using photography to tell your community story whether it was a portrait, a small photo package or creating slideshows. Many participants had great ideas for the organizations. We broke down ideas into identifying a story, choosing a format and delivery method.What I observed during the brainstorm session the topics were generally too broad. So we talked about  breaking down stories that could be done in a day, week, month or even a year.  Slideshows were the most popular concept in delivery.

Here is a PDF of the video presentation about engaging your community through video. video-presentation
