Media Productions I & II are each semester long courses that allow students to learn how to use film and visual imagery to express themselves. In Media I there is a focus on introducing concepts such as preproduction, editing (as seen in the Recut Trailers), and stop motion. Media II allows students to further that study and create more pieces such as How To videos, individual stop motions, and Day in the Life videos.

Day in the Life...

For this set of videos, students were asked to create a 'Day in the Life' video utilizing the 5 basic camera shots (Extreme Wide, Long Shot, Medium Shot, Close up, Extreme Close up), composition and editing.

Students created everything from parodies, to acting out an adventure of cat friends, to life from the perspective of a car!

Stop Motion

Stop Motion Animation is a technique used in animation to bring unmoving objects to life on screen. This is done by moving the objects in small increments while filming a frame per slight movement. When all the frames are played in sequence it shows movement. This is the illusion of life.

For the following projects, students created their own stop motions using house hold items as well as creating their own characters from scratch.
