Syllabus

Milford Central School: Videography

COURSE DESCRIPTION


PROJECTS Class time is divided between demonstration, review, and student driven filming and editing. While there are some days when we are all “on the same page” (during a demonstration, for example), there are many more days when one team is working on a storyboard; another team is out of the room gathering video footage; another team is busy editing; and still another team is finishing up its current project and trying to get a head start on the next one. Even within an individual team, it is quite likely that each student will be involved in a separate aspect of the project. Each team member will be assigned a specific role for the project and be responsible for completing that task to the best of their ability.  You will create a variety of video projects ranging from stop animation and interviews, to TedTalks and filming local events.
