VPAS 694 Non-Fiction Film Production for the High School Classroom

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

With the advent of affordable, high-quality video cameras and highly accessible computer-based
editing systems, documentary filmmaking has become an increasingly popular storytelling
medium for high school students. The camera opens up new worlds to high school students in
profound and revolutionary ways. Explore the documentary form, experiment with a wide range of
affordable production and post-production tools, and come away with interview strategies, lighting
and sound basics, proficiency using technical gear, and the foundation for developing rubrics
for film-based projects to use in your classroom. Recommended for high school teachers. No
previous filmmaking experience necessary.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
