The Film Program at the Elementary School includes students in grades 3-5. The focus is on visual storytelling. Throughout the year, students learn the elements of good storytelling techniques through the study of film examples. Students learn film vocabulary including basic shot types, the use of various pieces of film equipment, and how to create scripts, storyboards, shot lists, and other important pre-production documents. As the students get older, they have more opportunities to create their own film projects. Students also learn the many different roles in the film industry. Whenever possible we take field trips to film festivals, the Museum of the Moving Image, and other opportunities that may arise in this thriving, film-producing city.
