What do you think should be on our syllabus?
I'm an educator who is creating an introductory filmmaking class for high school students. It's a free program, ten two-hour sessions over ten weeks. We're likely to draw students who have never picked up a camera, students who have tried their hand at short filmmaking, and lots of students in between. We have a bit of a budget for equipment, although I'm leaning in the direction of students using phones and iPads as primary cameras, as I doubt we'll be able to fully exploit all that a more sophisticated camera can do in the time allotted. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Help me put together some starting blocks.
