Film shorts

I wonder whether the Monday evening time slot at the YHF could focus on watching two or three short documentary films (10-30) minutes, probably in two or three different rooms, so people could get up and walk a bit to rotate through them. Ideally, we would have students in small enough groups that we could facilitate a discussion so kids aren’t just passively watching. Here are some likely possibilities.

Movie Making Software Packages

Much has been discussed about what software to use with high school students when starting a class on movie making.  Questions addressing how to make a DVD, or edit sound, movies, or photos all need to be understood.  Just this month PC Magazine has offered a pretty decent article for the novice.  It’s a overview of all the steps in making a movie and includes an explanation of basic technology.  Included in the article are reviews of both introductory and “serious hobbiest” software packages for consideration.  Most of their suggestions are priced under $100.  The article can be found at http://go.pcmag.com/makingmovies.  The software reviews are linked to the article.
