Description

 
  Program Description A pre-professional program for aspiring screenwriters and film makers who are interested in developing a script, the art of stage or film acting, and directing. We focus on original collaborative work so that our students grow rich in the experience of ensemble-building through creating their own productions. Students will benefit from this course through developing skills as a listener, observer, reader, writer, actor; director etc. Students will collaborate and develop an original script for the first half of the program the pre-production process. The students will gain knowledge through the creative process in writing while developing focus, communication, and to engage in a team activities .The scripts they will develop will involve knowledge of history and culture while learning about the evolution of film. Most important, knowledge of this creative process prepares the student for life in two ways: It teaches students that the performing arts can enrich their lives as a recreational activity and it prepares students for being more observant and more aware of themselves and others while developing a spirit of empathy and compassion. In production, and post-production students will produce their original idea on film. This process includes organizing budget, casting, location scouting, operating equipment, editing and sound mixing and special effects and animations. Lastly, the program concludes with a screening and feedback. This incorporates the four strands of the TEKS for fine arts.
