Students in Mr. Johantgen’s Video 1 class may have been film novices when they started, but they have developed enough skills to create short films with inventive stories.
For their latest project, students worked in groups to pitch an original idea, write their script, act, film, and assemble and edit their footage.
“I’m proud of the movie our group made because I know how much effort and team work went into it,” said freshman Carson Fish.
This project has opened freshman Erin Cosentino’s eyes to the movie-making skills she has acquired. She hopes to be a screenwriter some day, and it was important for her to learn all the steps necessary to make an idea bloom into a movie.
“The editing is harder than I thought, but once you learn to do it, it’s so much fun. And I’m also more confident now when I get in front of the camera,” she said.
