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.
