Advanced Film & Videography: DOCUMENTARY & MORE!

with Tom Knight


Ages: For student entering 4th through 7th grades

Students will learn more advanced techniques of filmmaking to create documentaries, and recreating a scene from a TV show or movie. We’ll be working on skills like creating a script with other writers, recording good audio, interviewing techniques, shooting B-Roll, reverse angle shots for dialogue,  and editing with iMovie. Everyone will have opportunities to try their hand at all aspects of the process in front of and behind the camera. The last day of class will be the premiere of the films created during the week.

Tom Knight is a videographer and filmmaker who loves teaching. Besides making videos for musicians and web sites, Tom is also a puppeteer and songwriter and has been performing regularly at schools, libraries and festivals for over 25 years.
