Welcome to Video Production at Palms Middle School!

Welcome to Video Production!

This class is designed to introduce 7th and 8th grade middle school students to the fundamentals of digital film/video production. Students will be engaged in hands-on experiences, use communications skills, and develop strategies to learn the basics filmmaking: pre-production, production, and post-production.

            Students will produce video products in the form of narrative/dramatic, informational/documentary, promotional/persuasive, and creative/music video. Using their ipads and video cameras, they will have a general overview and experience shooting videos, sound recording /engineering, and editing using iMovie and Final Cut Pro. The students will work individually, with partners, and collaborate in groups to make these productions and eventually will upload the finished videos to our class website. As they use technology, students will also develop skills in planning, organization, script writing, interpersonal communication, team building, and media literacy. Students will participate in every aspect of video production from editing to directing on-screen talent.
