Yesterday started the annual summer adventure of Film Crew. Each year teens get together and put their great minds together with those of their peers and librarians. Out of this comes an original short film that will eventually get uploaded to YouTube.
Yesterday’s meet was fairly simple, but amusing. We all met in the meeting room and started off by watching the previous years’ short films, and discussing improv, script-writing, set design, and filming. Afterwards, we tried a few acting exercises, which ended up being quite hilarious. To finish off the meeting, we learned how to properly use the cameras and practiced filming.
Overall, we were exposed to different aspects of film crew, and were told about past years’ experiences.
NEXT WEEK: Brainstorming and picking the topic for the movie.
