Intro to Filmmaking - Classic
Our brains and our hearts are wired for stories. Intro to Filmmaking allows your student to explore storytelling creatively through the universally appealing medium – film. Intro to Filmmaking is a fantastic online film curriculum for preteens and teens. The course includes an Intro to Filmmaking spiral-bound worktext with 18 in-depth lessons and projects. After each lecture, students are given an appropriate assignment that can be completed by either individuals or co-op groups.
Family-friendly movies (not included but readily available) and a critical evaluation of them are integral in this course. All of these lessons are building up to creating your student’s own short film. That final film will be submitted for professional review and entered into a film festival complete with prizes! Intro to Filmmaking not only fulfills every student’s desire to be a creative storyteller, but it also fulfills a high school credit.

”If you have a student who is attached to their phone, invest in them. Instead of making money for apps like Tik-Tok or Snapchat, give them skills for the real world with this course.”
