Description of Film Making
This course is for the High School Visual Arts Core Curriculum. It is designed to provide an overview and introduction to the four most basic phases of film making: Development, Pre-Production, Production, and Post-Production. This course covers higher-level thinking skills and art-related technology skills with an emphasis on the creation of films in either traditional or electronic media. The prerequisite for this course is any other high school fine arts course.
Explanation of Standards
The discipline of Film Making is a high tech form of story telling. It requires diverse talents from many people and a broad range of equipment and locale. This Core is designed to direct the student through the film making process from the concept of the story line to exhibition of the final project. The Core assists the student to both participate in and oversee the actual creation of a film. The Core is divided into four standards; each standard is broken down into several objectives. Each objective is further broken down into a range of actions (bulleted) that achieve the objective. The student scores his or her achievement within each objective by marking a number ranging from 0 to 10 in a box to the left of each objective. At the end of the Core is a legend wherein the student or teacher tallies the average score from the objective boxes and the number of objectives the class has studied.
Technology requirements for this class include computers with art/graphics software, color printer, image projector, image capturing devices such as digital camera and camcorder, playback device, and editing hard- and software, and appropriate new technologies.
