Video, music/stage tech classes film silent movies at Shocker Studios

On Feb. 8, 2018, students in the video fundamentals, video production, and music and stage tech classes traveled to Shocker Studios in Wichita, Kan. to participate in a one-day workshop.

Pre-production work started several days before the trip as each group developed storyboards, assigned jobs and planned costumes and props for their silent movie projects. Once they arrived at Shocker Studios for the day, they had a quick tour and then spent the morning determining filming location, lighting and camera set-up. They designed their sets and filmed their movies.

The afternoon was spent in the editing room, and that process will continue into next week. Watch for the final videos to be posted soon!

Video Fundamentals and Production classes create how-to videos

The students in Ann Asbury's Video Fundamentals and Video Production class just completed their first project of the year: how-to videos. Below are links to two of the videos; more will be added soon! You can also view the videos by clicking on the "Entertainment" link above.

How to Make Slime

Do's, Don'ts and Please Don'ts of Marching Band
By Jada, Meridith, Erin and Aaron

Students began with a storyboard and determined the best sequence for the script. Then they planned their shoots, filmed their clips and dropped them into Adobe Premiere to get a rough cut. The editing process proved to be time-consuming as they learned how to edit for length and sound. Once the videos were complete, they were rendered with Adobe Media Encoder and uploaded onto YouTube!
