The number of students looking for an education in film and video production is increasing dramatically, as is the number of schools offering these programs. Thus the demand for qualified film and video teachers is growing.
This one-week course is for educators who aim to introduce film and video production in their schools, either as a new course or as part of an existing one, and want access to some of the latest thinking and equipment across a spectrum of school budgets. (Experienced film and video teachers should refer to the Advanced Film & Video Teachers workshop.) We'll explore the technology, methodology and practical aspects of student productions, curriculum and course content, exercises and projects, video and filmmaking techniques, and a wide variety of student work. We'll also discuss budgets, equipment, and classroom/lab setup.
This is a hands-on course where we test-drive various camera systems, software, and production tools. We'll review textbooks, online resources and training videos, and practice critique methods as we screen work that each participant completes during the week. Participants should expect to be working 8-10 hours a day and loving it - gaining energy and confidence in themselves as film and video teachers.
For those wishing for additional education, the Advanced Film & Video Teachers workshop is offered the following week.
