|CLASS: Introduction of the Movie Project Theme and Storyboarding
The Freshi Teachers introduce the simple 'beginning, middle and end' story structure. This is the structure that the group will use to create the stories of their films. The Freshi Teachers stipulate that the films should be 3 to 7 minutes in length.
Storyboarding is a way to create a visual version of a story. Teachers demonstrate how to create a storyboard.
HANDS ON EXPERIENCE: Film crews break into groups to create and Storyboard their stories. Once they have finished the story they want to shoot, they will Pitch, or explain, the story to a Freshi Teacher. The teacher will determine if the story can be produced fully in the time available. If the story is too ambitious the Freshi teacher will work with the film crew to reshape it to make sure the movie can be finished. Once the story is set, it will be Greenlit, or given the go ahead, for production.
Crews will need to discuss costumes and props at this time. They will have time to create costumes from their own clothes.
