DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS III-IV
DIGITA L COMMUNICAT ION TECHNOLOGY 3
394093 Grades 10 - 12
This course gives students a greater understanding of how
a film is produced, as well as what it takes to be a director.
Students extend their thinking beyond a news basis; they participate in the steps a film student would take in order to get a
movie proposal green-lighted, using both a pre-approved script
and their own original script. Students write journals, develop
storyboards and directors’ notebooks for each video assignment,
analyze scripts for content, and work independently to
choose location, actors, and costumes. They conduct principal
photography and proceed to post-production at the editing
machines, making creative decisions that lead to a completed
final movie scene and a short, original movie.
