The Video Production elective, first taught in the 2014-2015 school year, introduces 7th and 8th grade Palms students to the fundamentals of film and video production.
Students engage in hands-on experiences as they learn the basics of filmmaking: pre-production, production, and post-production. They develop skills in planning, organization, script writing, interpersonal communication, team building, and media literacy. Students participate in every aspect of video production, from editing to directing on-screen talent.
Students produce video products in the form of narrative/dramatic, informational/documentary, promotional/persuasive, and creative/music video. Equipment used includes video cameras, iPads, and laptop computers.
They practice shooting videos, doing sound recordings and sound engineering, and editing using iMovie. They work individually, with partners, and in collaborative groups.
