Overview of the class
Course Outline (subject to change)
This class would not be possible without the generous donation of the Foege family that allowed for the purchase of the cameras, tripods, microphones, external hard drives and software. Thank you!
Thank you PIE!
Partners in Education has generously donated funds for a green screen and lighting for the digital video class. This equipment allows students to superimpose themselves on an image or video from another location. Students can give the impression that they're located in a jungle, flying through the sky or any other creative location or idea they come up with. The students also gain a betting understanding of how green screens are used in cinema and lighting techniques.
Possible sounds (remember sounds need to be copyright free).

Final Projects from past years
Mystery Me Projects (Fall 2011) These 6th, 7th and 8th graders did their 1st project in the Fall of 2011. They had to film clues as to who they were without revealing their faces or voices. They learned how to use the cameras, film various types of shots, edit, import audio and images, as well as add titles and credits using Windows Live Movie Maker.
Final Projects from last year
The video students researched their topics, filmed, wrote/recorded narrations, interviewed people and used copyright free images and sounds.
