Wondering if movie-making is too difficult? This class is for you! Help your students create their own digital stories by experiencing the process yourself. This three-day workshop teaches the pre-production, production and post-production phases of movie making. You will have an opportunity to choose one of three easy (and free) software programs to use: Windows MovieMaker (PC), iMovie (Mac), or PhotoStory 3 (PC).
The class is a cross between a writer’s workshop and a movie-making symposium. Bring a story to share, or select from one of the stories provided. Participants will walk away with their own 3-5 minute movie and lots of ideas about how to help students create one.
