Learn how to make a movie trailer.
If you love movies, you probably love the thing that gets you excited to go to the theater ... movie trailers.
We will examine what makes a great movie trailer for all sorts of genres (comedy, drama, action, horror, etc.), and then we'll will make a trailer! All you need is a love of movies (and trailers), a good idea, and a smartphone to shoot with. We’ll put it all together to make the best 2.5-minute trailer we can.
You may register your youth for an optional, supervised lunch hour from 12-1 pm for the duration of this class.
Students will make a trailer of two or fewer minutes on a theme of their own or chosen by the class.
