Students examine each component of film—“The Story”, “The Images”, and “The Sound” as they work in small groups to create a short film. “The Story” includes the basics of story structure through a series of writing exercises, and understanding of character development.  “The Image” addresses telling the story with the camera through camera placement and exploring how the composition of subjects within the frame can add subtext to a story.  Editing techniques and use of sound round out the important components to film making.  Students apply this knowledge as they work in small teams to create a 2-minute film from a randomly assigned subject. Screening and critique of each film reinforces the students’ understanding of film language.
