On this adventure filmmaking mission, you’ll discover how to shoot and edit an adventure movie, while mastering filmmaking and special effects techniques.
You’ll develop a story idea with your production team, then turn that concept into a script and a shot-by-shot storyboard. You’ll get to experience the different roles involved in making an adventure movie: director, presenter, camera operator, producer, special effects technician and editor. You’ll discover creative camera angles and unique shots, then edit your original footage to create a professional adventure film.
At the end of the course, the films will be uploaded onto The Hive’s private Youtube channel to share with friends and family.
