Visual Storytelling II is a six week course that expands on the skills and concepts learned in Visual Storytelling I.  The focus is on the narrative elements of storytelling through video. 3rd-5th grade students produce a series of projects that encourages the development of narrative structure, tone, genre, character, and artistic voice.    Additionally, students will also gain experience working with a variety of film equipment and technology including but not limited to cameras, lights, and microphones.

Visual Storytelling II Projects include:

  1. The Before and After Project
  2. In Reverse (story told backwards)
  3. The Time Traveling Project
  4. The Difficult Journey
  5. The Problem

Students will produce all of their video projects in collaboration with a partner.  Completion of all projects is time permitting.

All students will be editing on Mac Book Pro computers and using iMovie or Final Cut Pro X, which are provided by the Film Academy.  Upon request, students may also receive a free WeVideo account, use the editing platform, and have access to their footage from home.

Classes are limited to 12 Students.
