Marshall Fundamental School is excited to offer this enrichment class for Marshall students interested in filmmaking. Taught by award-winning filmmaker Lee Isaac Chung, students are being introduced to how films are made from start to finish.
The first few classes were spent discovering what makes a compelling story. As participants brainstormed, and came up with lots of creative ideas, which were then filtered down into a narrative they were excited to make a movie about. A script resulted from the collaboration, with characters, locations, and dialogue. Students went through the script and made comments and adjustments as participants rehearsed the dialogue together.
Storyboards were created by students, who will have an opportunity to direct and shoot a scene. The use of storyboards helps to visualize what each scene will look like prior to filming. In the latest session, Isaac taught participants the basics of using a camera, including lighting, color, and focus. The remaining classes will be reserved for shooting, then editing into a finished movie.
