Students learned the skills necessary to create a short film using the medium of Digital Video. Students worked in small groups to write, direct, film, act in, and edit an original movie. Activities included storytelling and writing exercises, exploring technical and artistic process of translating their story into visual images, participate in drama based cooperation exercises, work on character development and acting, learn basic operation of the equipment in order to film scenes and learn how to use I-movie to editing their film. There was a screening of final work created at Intermedia Arts on Saturday, June 2.
